Celebration of life held today
For almost two decades, that local support has been tremendous. For a dozen years, Watauga's event ranked nationally in the Top Ten Relays. It claimed the No. 1 honor five consecutive years for most money raised in its population group.
To continue earning such accolades, 42 teams of volunteers and supporters will take to the Watauga High School track beginning at 2 p.m. today to set up for a night of festivities.
If you've attended the Relay in the past, you know about the emotional impact of an event that celebrates life and endurance.
You know about the entertainment that includes dancing, song and children's activities.
Most importantly, you know about the survivor and caregiver lap and the luminaria ceremony.
If you haven't attended, today is your opportunity to find out about all that Relay has to offer — and to join more than 3.5 million people worldwide walking toward the same goal.
