2013 Relay gaining momentum

Rushville Republican

RUSHVILLE — Several local participants, team captains, board members and others were in attendance during a recent meeting in preparation of the June Relay for Life in Rush County.

Also attending were members of the New Salem Lions Club, who were on hand to make a monetary donation to this year’s Relay.

Rush County is a part of the Great Lakes District and during the January meeting it was announced that the monetary goal set by the ACS for the 2013 local event is $35,000.

The 24-hour Relay will begin at 6 p.m. June 14 and continue until 6 p.m. the following day and will be held in South Veterans Memorial Park.

This year’s theme is Rock & Roll, with team themed booths highlighting music of the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s taking center stage.

With the exception of the past few years, Rush County has been recognized nationally for their fundraising efforts and organizers hope to return to that status this year.

Team captains meet at 6:30 p.m. the fourth Tuesday of each month leading up to the Relay in Council Chambers (located at the Rushville Police Department, 270 West 15th Street).

To register a team or to obtain additional information regarding this year’s event Mann can be contacted at (765) 969-8282.
