Relay For Life Begins Friday

By Staff | Jun 16, 2009

The Wetzel County Relay For Life will be held Friday beginning at 6 p.m. and ending on Saturday at 6 a.m. on the Magnolia High School track.

In its 11th year in the fight against cancer, the Wetzel County relay has already collected more than their $84,000 goal. This is the first time the goal has been met prior to the actual event and organizers are excited to see what the final tally will be.
