Relay For Life slated June 6-7

By

Gahanna and New Albany's annual Relay For Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society, will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, June 6, at Gahanna Lincoln High School, 140 S. Hamilton Road.

The event will conclude the following morning.

The Gahanna-New Albany Relay For Life was held at several different locations before landing at Gahanna Lincoln High School three years ago.

"The location is very important to the success of our event and Gahanna Lincoln High School has been wonderful to work with to build our Relay event each year," event chairwoman Stephanie Musko said. "The centralized location in Gahanna, along with the visibility we receive from being right in the center of things, ensures that not only our participants can locate the event, but we are also able to attract drive-by attention from people who may not know a Relay is being held."

Musko said 300 people participated last year. As of last week, 260 registered online for the June 6-7 event.

Last year, the event raised $66,512.

Musko said the fundraising goal this year is $68,000.

"So far, we have raised almost $34,000 and with many exciting fundraisers still to go, we will definitely be exceeding our goal again this year," she said.
