Holly Springs Relay For Life 5K Run/Walk set for January 19

NACOGDOCHES – Grab your sneakers and join in the fun at the inaugural Holly Springs Relay For Life 5K Run/Walk, one of the many events raising money for Relay For Life of Nacogdoches County. The 5K run will start at 8 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, in historic downtown Nacogdoches at Thomas J. Rusk Elementary School, 411 N. Mound St.

            Participants may register online at until Thursday, Jan. 17, or register the day of the event beginning at 7 a.m. at TJR. Fees for the run are $25, and the first 150 registered participants are guaranteed a T-shirt. Proceeds will help Holly Springs Baptist Church reach their fundraising goal for this spring’s Relay For Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society.

Relay For Life will be held Friday, April 26 through Saturday, April 27. RFL is an all-night event designed to spread cancer awareness, celebrate the lives of survivors, remember those who lost their lives to cancer, and unite a community in the fight against cancer. Because cancer never sleeps, each team representative takes turns walking a track and a moving luminaria ceremony is held in memory of those who have lost the fight to cancer. The all-night event also honors strong survivors and features live entertainment, food and fun!

Funds raised for Relay For Life will enable the American Cancer Society to support local services and resources for cancer patients and their families. Funds also support critical cancer research and community education programs designed to teach people how to reduce their risk of developing cancer.
