Interest and involvement appear to be at an all-time high as many committee members said that they have had more and more people express interest in being a part of this year’s event, which will take place at the Crowley High School track on May 5 from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. This year’s theme is “Relay: A Night at the Movies” where individual teams will pick a specific movie as their focus.
This year’s kickoff, which was held in November, was also reflected upon as a great success. The room which was filled to capacity featured great testimonies and energy and the event was very informative.
All of the good news continues to help showcase the new energy and excitement about this year’s Relay for Life event.
With less than four months to the 2012 Relay for Life, though, focus has now turned to fundraising and getting teams and survivors interested and involved as well as sponsors.
Acadia Parish has set goals for funds raised and people involved on all counts and looks to meet them by Bank Night.
Meanwhile old teams were welcomed back and new teams were also welcomed Monday night.
“We thank you for joining the fight against cancer,” said Camille Breaux, community representative for the American Cancer Society’s Mid-South Division.
The meeting also provided team captains the chance to share ideas about fundraising. They will also have a chance to learn more about Relay for Life and teams as later this month there will be a team captain university, which Breaux pointed too as an important event to attend for team captains.
