Meridian Township’s Relay for Life will take place May 16-17 behind Chippewa Middle School starting at 3 pm Friday to 3 pm Saturday.
Meridian Community Church, the Kiwanis Club of Okemos, numerous businesses and volunteer groups/organizations will be involved. This is all an effort to find a cure for cancer and raise awareness for the disease that kills millions every year. This event is personal for me because my younger sister had cancer.
I attended a Relay For Life event a few years ago and it was definitely worthwhile. Getting together with people who had common ground and fighting the same struggle is powerful. These relays happen all over the country in just about every city. Just call your local American Cancer Society chapter if you want to donate money or attend Relay for Life in a town near you.
