Jackson County Hospital hosts 2017 Relay for Life of Jackson County Kickoff Event on Aug.15″

Edna, Texas – The American Cancer Society 2017 Relay For Life of Jackson County will hold a kickoff for the annual event on August 15 at 6 p.m. at Jackson County Hospital District in the Conference room, located at 1013 South Wells Street, Edna, TX. Everyone is invited to the kickoff to learn about how to help the American Cancer Society save more lives from cancer.

The program will highlight how the community has benefited from funds raised and will honor cancer survivors and caregivers, as well as explore new ideas for the 2017 event. Guests will have the opportunity to register a team for the Relay For Life event, which will be held on October 21 at Brackenridge Main Event Center. The Relay For Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every cancer in every community.

The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at Brackenridge Main Event Center and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event, which will be discussed more at the Kickoff event on August 15.

Jackson County Hospital District is a longtime supporter of the event and a 2017 corporate sponsor. Visit relayforlife.org/jacksoncotx to learn more about the event or how you or your business can get involved. Or, contact Tracy Crites at tracy.crites@cancer.org.
