NORWICH – The 15th annual Relay For Life of Chenango County Kickoff will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Morrisville State College Norwich Campus community room, 20 Conkey Ave.
The open house and informational meeting will showcase the many different aspects of Relay For Life, according to event chair Marie DeSarro, and a brief introduction and welcome for the 2011 season will be held from 6 to 6:30 p.m.
DeSarro announced a goal of $155,000 for this year’s Relay and said she’s confident the annual fundraiser will meet or exceed that objective. Last year, the local Relay For Life raised over $151,000, exceeding its goal of $150,000, she added.
From a committee standpoint, DeSarro reported the local Relay For Life is encouraging teams to set a specific goal this year. For example, a team consisting of ten members might set its goal at $1,000 or more, she said.
