Bladen County Relay For Life is set for this Saturday from 11 am until 11 pm at the Elizabethtown Middle School Field. “Our slogan this year is ‘Stricking Out Cancer’, because that is exactly what we want to do,” Jessica Inman, Co-Chair of this year’s event said.

Thus far, there are 34 teams signed up with 375 participants raising over $82,600 for Relay For Life according to Jessica. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is the world’s largest and most impactful fundraising event to end cancer. It unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all.

This weekend is Bladen County’s turn to unite against cancer. This year the goal for Bladen County Relay For Life to raise is $115,000. Co-chairs, Jessica Inman and Mandy Padrick, have an action packed day to assist in the fundraising efforts.

There will be a High Noon Service given by Rev. Johnathan Mills. Performing will be multiple talented singers and performers during the whole event. According to Jessica, Mickey Mouse will be in attendance from 11:30 am until 12:30 pm, and the kids are really excited about that. Classic Cruisers will take a lap at 4 pm.

The Survivors registration and reception will be from 5:30 until 6:30 and Opening Ceremonies will begin at 6pm. Starting at 6:30 the Survivors will take their lap, then to follow, will be the Caregivers Lap, and then the Memorial Lap.

The luminaries were donated in honor of Otis Evans and anyone wanting to purchase luminaries may do so until 7:30 pm. The Luminaries Ceremony will begin at 9 pm. Awards will be given at 10:30 pm followed with the Closing Ceremonies.

To register for the event Jessica said, “They may go online, or call me at (910)840-1893, or come to the event.” For a complete line up of all the events click here.
