St. Maries Relay for Life Kicks Off Next Week

0

As the seasons change, so does our focus. The volunteers in our area start to get ready to do big, big things. And this summer’s events are no different.

Even though the second annual St. Maries Relay for Life isn’t until August, planning and fundraising begins this week. Anyone who wants more information about the event should attend the kick-off meeting Tuesday, March 11. It starts at 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Heyburn Elementary.

Aki Hicks, Brandi Scheffelmaier, Crystal Houck holding Dalton Swisher, Stephanie Remington, Sandy Auer, Kristina Mills, Starla Thompson and her daughter Aspen invite the community to the Relay for Life kick-off in St. Maries, which is March 11.

Sisters Crystal Houck and Starla Thompson led the effort to host the first event in St. Maries last year. The women lost their grandmother to cancer and wanted to do something in her memory. That first effort boasted nine teams and netted more than $30,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Lucky for us, the sisters are back. Crystal and Starla, with the help of several other local volunteers, are organizing the 2014 event.

Teams can register at the March 11th meeting and will then be able to start fundraising. Organizers hope to have 20 teams this year and raise $50,000.
