Anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer and their caregivers are encouraged to join the celebration.

For more information about next Saturday's American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Paulding County, contact Debbie Freeman at 770-429- 1624 or at.

Another highlight of Saturday's Relay for Life will be the Survivor Celebration Dinner, open to all cancer survivors and their caregivers.

St. Theresa School in Kenilworth kicked off a simplified version of Relay for Life on Friday, May 12th.

A cancer-fighting fundraiser that once drew hundreds of participants for a 24-hour relay will pass the baton in search of a new event.

The event, known as a Relay For Life, is one of nine such cancer support events in CT over the weekend, according to a release. All monies raised Saturday night and from other fundraising from throughout the year go to help fund groundbreaking cancer research, patient care programs, and can make a difference in communities like ours.

At 6 p.m. cancer survivors will circle a track together, either walking or riding a tram, to help celebrate the victories they have achieved. There are more teams registered and teams can continue to register through the event. Last year, Relay for Life events in the United States raised over 279 million dollars.
