‘Relay for Life’ organizers seeking committee members, volunteers

Cancer survivors took a ceremonial first loop around the track at the 2012 Prairie Village Relay for Life.
With a successful inaugural event in the bag, organizers of the Prairie Village Relay for Life are already starting to put the pieces together for a second event late this summer.

Event Chair Gay Garrett said the group is in the process of approaching potential sponsors for this year’s event and is looking for volunteers to serve on three committees: team development, publicity and activities.

Additionally, the group will be seeking volunteers to serve on committees that will help put the event together. The 2013 Prairie Village Relay for Life will be held Aug. 24 at Franklin Park. Last year’s event raised approximately $13,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Team Captains and Committee Chairs will be meeting Wednesday at UltraMax Sport at the Village Shops. For more information, contact Garrett at gaybg@yahoo.com.
