Kick-Off meeting to be held Tuesday night for Fayette Co. Relay for Life

OAK HILL - Folks interested in helping with Fayette County's annual Relay for Life can attend a meeting Tuesday night in Oak Hill.

It starts at 6 p.m. at the Holiday Lodge and it is the first of several monthly meetings leading up to the Relay in June. Organizers hope to have more people involved this year to raise awareness about cancer and raise funds for cancer research.

The event will be held on a Saturday this year instead of a Friday in hopes of attracting more participants. "We want people to have the opportunity to stay for the whole event to see what celebrating the survivor's life is about and remembering the loved ones that have passed," explained Fayette County Relay for Life Chairperson Melissa Menei.

The Relay will take place June 14 from noon to midnight.

If you want to get involved but can not make it to the planning meetings, you can call the American Cancer Society in Beckley at 304-252-5521 or click here.
