Relay For Life adds 5K Run to May Celebration

Runners of all ages are invited to lace up for the first Marga-Relay-Ville 5K run on Saturday, May 17, at Heritage High School in Wake Forest. The charity run will be part of the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life that weekend at the school.

Registration for the timed 5K requires a $25 donation to the fight against cancer. Sign up at www.NorthernWakeRelay.org and look for Relay 5K, or contact Melissa Kobelinski at melissa.kobelinski@cancer.org or 919-334-5228.

People in wheelchairs, wagons, strollers and walkers are also invited to take part (but no pets or bicycles).

Vendor booths are available for $25 and commemorative race shirts are $15 each.

Every dollar raised through the 5K goes to the American Cancer Society’s efforts to eliminate cancer and support those battling the disease. The race starts at 9 a.m.

Relay For Life, which starts at 6 p.m. May 16, is an overnight celebration of cancer survivors, complete with a luminaria ceremony, food, live music, games and activities for kids.
