Relay for Life Kickoff Thursday

Lauderdale County, Miss.
Plans are already being made for the 2014 Lauderdale County Relay for Life. The kickoff is set for Thursday.

Teams are encouraged to start fundraising now in order to meet their goals. And officials say it's not too late to organize a team.

Co-chair Justin Branton says your help is needed to reach a $350,000 goal.

"The goal is up a little bit this year. Last year we raised just under $300,000 for Lauderdale County," said Branton. "So we wanted to increase that and each year give more and more. The more money raised obviously the more the people can be educated about cancer."

The 2014 Relay for Life is set for April 25, 2014, at the Lauderdale County Agri-Center.

The kickoff is Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. at the EMEPA Auditorium.
