The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is coming to Franklin on March 18 at the Franklin High School track.
The event is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbeque, dance, and take turns walking around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. Relay For Life has spread to more than 5,000 communities across the country.
At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminara candles around the track in a touching ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. Relay For Life represents hope that those lost to cancer will not be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.
