Relay for Life kickoff set

To The editor:

It’s with great excitement that the Relay For Life of Steubenville invites the Ohio Valley on a journey. On Wednesday, from 6 p.m to 8 p.m., the Fort Steuben Mall will open its doors to the American Cancer Society’s Steubenville Relay For Life Kickoff. This 100-day kickoff is designed to jump start the relay by registering teams as well as motivating and informing the community about relay. We want everyone we come in contact with to get excited about the event. This Relay For Life Kickoff is a celebration and it’s an excellent outreach opportunity to grow the relay, recruit volunteers, new teams and survivors.

Now is the most important time to join in this fight against cancer, and we’re on a mission with the American Cancer Society to finish the fight against this disease. This event is free and is not a fundraiser. We will be educating the public with a virtual tour of Relay For Life, we will honor survivors with a special reception, and we will have a cupcake bar available to the public. It’s the perfect community-awareness event to bring the people of the Ohio Valley together for a common cause.

This is your chance to join in the fight that has unfortunately hit close to home with all of us in one way or another. We hope to have your support and look forward as we celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer. Don’t you want to join us in the fight against cancer?
