Location: Mike Colwell Memorial Stadium, Blairsville
Time: Friday 6:00pm until Saturday 8:30am

The annual Relay For Life fundraising event is held starting with the opening ceremonies at 6:00pm, including a survivor's lap. The theme this year is "Fight Back With Colors Of Hope". It is the concluding event for all the Relay for Life fundraisers held through the year

The event continues through the evening with participating teams earning donations through number of laps made throughout the evening. A special remembrance time is held at 9:00pm with a candlelight ceremony. Teams continue walking all night until the closing ceremony at 7:45am Saturday morning.

Please come to the opening ceremonies, the survivor's lap, the candlelight ceremony, the closing ceremonies, and any of the fun events and singing held throughout the evening.

Hope to see y'all there tonight! It's always a wonderful, emotional event and it's always nice to know that Union County has a strong Relay here.

We were out there yesterday evening to help set up tents for the team Elizabeth is on. All the pieces weren't there for the ones that had been loaned to her, but thanks to the coordinators of this event, 2 tents were up in a matter of minutes. :)
Like Maddy, I hope to see ya'll there!!

This was a good event, with $140,000 raised by the Relay For Life teams through the creative fundraising and generous contributions of the Union County community.

Here's a picture from last night's Luminaria Ceremony to give you a peek at the event. A picture gallery will be coming soon.
