-A A +A

The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life will return to Oldham County this spring.

The fundraising event will be held 7 p.m.-7 a.m., May 10-11, at the Oldham County High School football field. It is the 12th year for the event here.

During the 12 hours, teams of participants take turns walking the track, which is illuminated by hundreds of luminaries. 

Teams can raise money for cancer research prior to the relay. On-site fundraising also is encouraged.

In addition to funds, Relay for Life also seeks to raise awareness of cancer and to celebrate those who have battled it and won. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences with cancer or those of family members and friends during the event.
