Flo Valley Hosts Relay For Life Event

Florissant Valley Community College will be the host of this year's Relay for Life, scheduled to take place June 29th on the FVCC campus. Seventeen teams of 121 North County residents have registered for this event, which raises money for cures for cancer and celebrates those who have survived the disease.

The Relay will begin at noon with a lap run by cancer survivors as well as those currently fighting against their cancer. Other events at the Relay include various fundraisers by teams, a Luminaria Ceremony that takes place after sundown, and a "Fight Back" Ceremony where participants are challenged to take a pledge of action that will change their lifestyle for the better. 

Florissant Valley's radio station, KCFV-FM 89.5 The Wave, will also be broadcasting live from the Relay For Life event.

The Relay for Life event has been occurring on a yearly basis across the United States since 1985 and was started by the American Cancer Society. For more information, visit the Relay for Life website at, or call the organization at 1-800-227-3245.
