Relay For Life Kickoff Oct. 18

The Relay for Life of Western Palm Beach County will host a kickoff party to gather anyone who wants to know more about the 2018 relay on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd.).

The Relay for Life of Western Palm Beach County includes everyone from The Acreage, Loxahatchee, Royal Palm Beach, Wellington and West Palm Beach, joining together to raise money to fight cancer.

Building on last year’s successful merger, this year’s event will again take place at the South Florida Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 10 from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. This year’s theme is “Decades: A Blast from the Past for a Future Without Cancer.” Everyone is welcome to attend the kickoff to learn more about the 2018 relay. There’s no commitment and no cost.

Funds raised through Relay for Life go to the American Cancer Society for research and to provide services for cancer patients, along with their families and caregivers. For more information, contact Lisa Noel at (561) 650-0129 or
