‘Paint the Town Purple’ in celebration of ACS, Relay For Life

User Rating: / 3

The American Cancer Society will “Paint the Town Purple” May 11, in celebration of its annual Relay For Life event. 

The Relay For Life of Hopkins County Committee asks that area groups, churches and businesses show their support in the fight against cancer by decorating their homes, buildings, storefronts and offices with as much purple spirit as possible the week of May 11. One home or office will be selected and honored for having the Most Relay Spirit. 

“Paint the Town Purple” is designed to bring awareness for “the work of the American Cancer to save lives from cancer by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures and by fighting back,” HCRFL Event Chair Amber Henry stated in a press release.

“We also want to get the word out regarding Paint the Town Purple and hoping that we will have a huge turnout,” said Regina Giguere, RFLHC Committee member.

This year's Relay For Life of Hopkins Country will be held from 7 p.m. Friday, May 15 to 7 a.m. Saturday, May 16, on Celebration Plaza.

RFL is designed to bring together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups — people from all walks of life — to celebrate the lives of those who have had cancer, remember those lost and fight back against the disease.

Relay For Life events are held as individuals and teams gather with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the walking “track” or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at Relay.

Giguere reminds RFL teams that the last team meeting prior to RFL will be held at 6 p.m. May 7 at League Street Church of Christ. The captain or a designated representative from each team should plan to attend; other team members are welcome to attend for final preparations and get details related to this year’s event.

For more information about RFL or “Paint the Town Purple,” contact Amber Henry at 903-271-1475.
