Prepare now for Camp Verde Relay for Life

May 30-31, 2014

Yes, I know it's only the middle of November, but it is never too early to start thinking about Relay for Life 2014. What is this all about? Well, Relay for Life is an event that raises money for cancer patients across the state of Arizona. This is accomplished by forming teams that will then walk all night, May 30 and 31 at the Camp Verde High School Track. There will be contests among the teams to see who can raise the most money, come up with the most ideas for themes for laps, the teams that have the most participation walking these theme laps, and teams that have someone walking the track all night long.

The 2013 event had the lowest level of participation ever. So, for 2014, we want to kick it up a notch. I would like to challenge sports teams, the Fire Dept., Police and Fire volunteers, High School clubs and societies from all of our high schools, youth groups, church groups, local civic groups, local businesses, families, and any one who has been hit by cancer to give this a try. If you are interested, please feel free to call Marissa Griffin at (928) 526-7344 to get more information or to sign up your team. Keep an eye on this paper as we keep you informed as the date draws closer.
