for Life event is July 17
The countdown is on for the 5th annual ACS Clearwater To Salmon Rivers Relay For Life event on Friday July 17 at the Grangeville High School track.
There are 21 teams signed up so far and more teams are welcome! All cancer survivors are invited to a wonderful reception at 5:00 pm and encouraged to walk the first lap of the Relay.
Wonderful entertainment, speakers, and all kinds of games and activities will make for a fun 16 hours of celebrating life! This year has been dedicated to our friend and co-founder of the Grangeville fundraiser, Mr. Jim Wagner, who was a vital committee member for the past 5 years. Jim always made sure that the necessities for a successful event were taken care of and always, no matter how tired or ill he felt, had a smile on his face. Jim fought hard but his cancer overtook and on May 2nd he lost his fight. We will take the time to remember Jim and all of our lost family members and friends during the Luminaria ceremony at 10:00 pm.
Watch for the insert in the Free Press for more information on this year’s event. There are many fundraisers planned between now and July 17 for you to be able to donate for a luminaria bag to be lit for your loved one.
