Northern Berkshire Relay for Life to step off Friday


American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Northern Berkshire will run from 6 p.m. Friday, May 30, through noon Saturday, May 31, at Noel Field.

Teams of walkers keep a continuous presence on the track throughout the night walking in shifts to raise funds for the ACS.

The handicapped accessible event will begin with a survivor lap in which hundreds of cancer survivors will take a victory lap around the track.

Highlighting the evening is the luminaria ceremony held after dark to honor cancer survivors and to remember those who have lost the fight. Luminaria bags may be purchased at the event.

Entertainment will include music, team fundraising activities, fun theme laps, and contests.
