Kickoff event set for Beltrami County Relay for Life

BEMIDJI – The Beltrami County Relay for Life will host its team captain kickoff celebration beginning at 6 p.m. Monday in the United Methodist Church.

The Relay for Life serves as the premier fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. Last year’s event generated more than $80,000 to benefit people in Beltrami County.

The Monday event features a potluck informational meeting, which will provide event details, team possibilities, answers to questions or the opportunity to register a team.

Those attending are asked to bring a dish to share.

The 2013 Relay for Life event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Sanford Event Center.
