The “Olympic” event – Calhoun County vs Cancer – will include a torch run from Calhoun City to the Bruce Square involving local high school football players from all four schools.
“Joining together as a community, united against Cancer, Calhoun County is going for the gold in Relay for Life participation and fundraising this year,” said event Chairwoman Theresa Nicks. “We need you to help us reach our goals.”

The Relay kick-off on Feb. 10 will be highlighted by the torch run down Hwy. 9. The runners will reach the Bruce Square with the Relay Torch at approximately 11 a.m. The rally will immediately follow and feature “fun for the whole family.”
Nicks said more specifics on the happenings at the rally will come next week, but she invited all to make plans to attend.

“Building our spirits and giving everyone a chance to find out what’s in this year’s Relay for Life playbook, the Calhoun County Relay for Life Kick-Off Rally and Torch Run is an event you don’t want to miss,” she said. “Help us ensure we are dancing under the goal post as we score big against this real rival in life – Cancer.”
