LEE COUNTY —
Relay For Life of Lee County, a local volunteer-run event, will meet Thursday, Oct. 20, to start planning the 2023 event.
Those interested in volunteering in leadership roles, forming fundraising teams or learning more are invited to attend the meeting, set for 5 p.m. at the Opelika Public Library, 1100 Glenn St.
“So many in our community are affected by cancer, and we’re inviting survivors, family members and those who want to help us fight back to attend our first planning meeting,” said Randy Causey, co-chair of Relay For Life Lee County, along with his wife, Debra, a cancer survivor.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness and Liver Cancer Awareness month, and every month recognizes a form of cancer.
“Cancer doesn’t take a break, and we don’t either,” Causey said.
Lee County’s Relay For Life raises money for the American Cancer Society’s national cancer research initiatives as well as support at the local level, including programs at East Alabama Health’s Spencer Cancer Center.
