Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Pike County Relay for Life is kicking off 2013 efforts tonight at Momma Goldberg’s in Troy.

“It’s really mainly for fellowship for the teams to get together, share their fund-raising ideas and get pumped up again,” said Liz McGrath, community representative for the Mid-South Division of the American Cancer Society.

The event begins at 5:15 in the back room of the restaurant and everyone interested in taking part in Relay is invited.

“We’ll be showing a video on Relay for Life and signing up teams, if they are ready,”

No goal has been set for this year’s fund-raising, but last year yielded $130,000 donated by Pike County Relay for Life.

“We tend to try to raise more money each year and keep the marble moving forward with research,” McGrath said.
