Relay For Life of Clay County 2013 will be the county's 17th event. The annual Relay For Life of Clay County kickoff had to be rescheduled due to a conflict. The original date was set for Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 6:30 p.m., at Pappy's Barbecue, Brazil. The new date has been scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 5, also at Pappy's.
Relay For Life of Clay County Director Rachel Romas says that there will be a mix and mingle event from 6:30-7 p.m., and the program will begin at 7:00. The keynote speaker for the event will be Brazil Mayor Brian Wyndham. Romas said the Relay Kickoff provides a chance for teams to learn more about what Relay For Life and what the American Cancer Society can offer families, organizations and businesses. The goals for Relay For Life of Clay County 2013 are to have 28 teams, 60 survivors and raise $30,000. According to Romas, each year, more than four million people in more than 20 countries take part in Relay For Life and raise funds for cancer awareness.
