The American Cancer Society's annual Relay For Life that was to be held on May 1, has been postponed until Saturday, August 8.

The times will be the same 6 to 10 p.m. at the Jackson County Courthouse. The survivor dinner will begin at 5 p.m. Everything will remain the same for events, survivor walk and the luminary service.

"The event is the greatest way there is to highlight the survivors and to remember those lost to cancer," states Sandra Fite, one of the volunteers. "It is a fun event that the whole can enjoy and help the teams raise money in the fight to cure cancer. The teams will continue to do fund raisers and will have fund raising games, etc. at their campsites at the relay. Mark your calendar and plan to come out and support the relay event. Teams work really hard to raise money and be a part of the event."

Survivors are needed for the lead off of the survivor walk. The luminary service is a part of the relay with bags of candles lining the walking trail honoring the survivors and those that have been lost to cancer.

For more information on the event, contact Janet Wood at 706-215-0080.
