Unionville High School hosts Relay for Life on June 7 and 8

The Kennett/Unionville Relay For Life takes place on June 7 and 8 at Unionville High School.

Relay For Life is an all-ages, family event that raises money to help cancer patients and their families, and benefits research to end cancer. The Relay starts at 6 p.m. on June 7, and continues non-stop all night until 10 a.m. on June 8. Participants can go for the entire time and camp overnight, or attend any number of hours during the event.

“Last year we raised over $65,000,” said Mike Zieg, chairman of the committee that organizes the Kennett/Unionville Relay For Life. “We have been successful because so many community members want to end cancer after experiencing its effects in their families. Our goal this year is to beat last year's total, and we need everyone who has been impacted by cancer to come out and join us.” 

Relay For Life is also an opportunity to help celebrate the lives of cancer survivors. Special recognition of survivors occurs on Friday evening, and all cancer survivors are welcome to attend, whether part of a team or not.

The Kennett/Unionville Relay includes continuous laps around the UHS track, games, face painting, live music, picnicking and more. A recognition lap and dinner for survivors and their caregivers is held on Friday evening, and a lighting of luminaria recognizes those who have lost the fight against cancer and honors others who are still  fighting the disease.

Details can be found at relayforlife.org/pakennettunionville, and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RelayForLifeOfKennettUnionville.
