    Relay for Life of Davie County 2017

 

Relay for Life of Davie County has kicked off important activities for Spring, 2017.  Each year individuals, businesses, churches, and other organizations form Relay for Life “teams” in Davie.  They join thousands of other teams across the country and world to raise funds for The American Cancer Society (ACS) that support cancer research, provide information and support to people facing the disease, and educate the community about cancer causes and ways to prevent it.  Corporate sponsorships are needed and available.

Davie County teams will sponsor various fundraisers and activities through May.  These include a large indoor yard sale, bake sale and silent auction at Bethlehem United Methodist Church, 321 Redland Road, Advance, on April 21st and 22nd.  Bethlehem’s team is also planning a Classic Car/Truck/Tractor “Cruise-In” for April 22nd.  On April 28th, cancer survivors and their caregivers will be treated to dinner and entertainment at Blaise Baptist Church in Mocksville.

On May 12th, from 6 p.m. to midnight, all Davie County teams will gather for the season’s largest Relay for Life event on the football field/track at Davie County High School.  The public is invited to attend and participate.  Cancer survivors will kick off the evening by walking the first lap around the track.  Relay team members and supporters continue walking throughout the evening to raise funds and awareness. Hundreds of cancer victims are honored or memorialized with luminaries around the field.  At dark the luminaries are lit while participants walk in silence in a solemn ceremony.  Luminaries also contain donated canned food which is given to Storehouse for Jesus after the event.  Several guest speakers and entertainers will appear during the evening and music is provided by The Mobile Jukebox.  Many Relay teams decorate their tents and sell food, soft drinks, t-shirts and other items to benefit ACS.

For more information regarding these events, to form a Relay team, purchase luminaries or make donations, contact Teresa Couch at (336) 492-2966 or couch.teresa@yahoo.com.  Donations can also be made online at www.relayforlife.org.
