Huntley to host Relay for Life event

HUNTLEY – The American Cancer Society Relay for Life – Huntley will be from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday at the Huntley Park District, 12015 Mill St.

Although the main objective of Relay for Life is to raise money for cancer research and cancer patients, the event also helps to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer and unite the community in the fight against cancer.

As of Wednesday, 136 individuals were registered to participate on 20 teams. More than $32,000 had been raised.

Registration for the event begins at 4 p.m. Performing at 4:30 p.m. will be Envision Dance Company from Center Stage Dance Academy. At 5 p.m., there will be an Intrigue Fitness Hula Hoop presentation.

A survivor dinner will be at 5:15 p.m., and the opening ceremony, which includes a survivor lap and a caregiver lap, will be at 6 p.m.

This year’s emcee will be Roy Rankin.

Also featured will be a luminaria ceremony at 9 p.m.

For information, to get help or to join the fight against cancer, call the American Cancer Society anytime at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.
