KEYSER - Sixteen teams have signed up to participate in this year’s Mineral County Relay for Life, which will be offering good food, games, music and more at the South End track on Saturday.
Relay for Life raises money for the American Cancer Society, and so participants represent cancer survivors, caregivers and supporters, as well as those who have fought or are currently fighting the disease.
Relay is for the entire community, however, and offers everyone a chance to stop by, enjoy some good food and fun activities.
A free photo booth will be set up, along with bouncey houses and a mechanical bull. Those planning to spend the entire day may purchase a bracelet for $5 which allows them to bounce and/or ride the entire day.
Among the food to be offered for sale or a donation are: Baked potatoes, pulled pork sandwiches, ham sandwiches, corn on the cob, walking tacos, baked goods, funnel cakes, fried Oreos, sno cones, hot dogs, chili dogs, tea, lemonade, sodas, bottled water, and more.
A variety of novelty items will also be available, including wooden roses, bracelets, necklaces, sunglasses, homemade dog treats, dog or cat bandanas, and t-shirts.
The teams signed up to participate include: Catamounts Against Cancer, Mountain Militia Cancer Fighters, Smokin’ Diesels, John’s Warriors, Phoebe’s Friends, Caregivers for a Cure, Oak Hill Wesleyan Church, Mineral County Bark for Life (sponsored by the Mineral Daily News Tribune), Cheri’s Canes, M&M Memories, Mary and Her Not So Little Lambs, Miracles and Memories of the Keyser Moose, Queens for a Cure, Keyser Evening Kiwanis, Pulmonary Pacers, and Lights and Sirens for the Cause.
Relay will get underway at noon Saturday and continue through midnight.
