Sevier County Relay for Life slated for Friday, June 2, 2017.

Sevier County Relay for Life slated for Friday, June 2, 2017. The Annual Sevier County Relay for Life, which celebrates cancer survivors and honors those who have lost the battle, will be held from 4 p.m.-midnight, at Patriot Park on Friday June, 2 2017. This free, family-friendly event also raises money to fund research that will someday find a cure for the disease that ranks as one of the nation’s biggest health problems. Come cheer those who have been affected by cancer whether they have been diagnosed 10 days or 10 years. A survivors lap will honor and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis, and a caregivers lap will recognize the selfless act of those caring for cancer victims.

Help the fight to find a cure June 2, 2017 at Patriot Park!

A ceremony featuring luminary bags representing loved ones lost to cancer will provide an opportunity to grieve while offering comfort. Participants will walk continuously to signify that cancer never sleeps. Campsites are available around the park and food and beverage vendors are also scheduled to help with fundraising. Activities, music and entertainment is scheduled throughout the event.
