Relay for Life turns Guthrie purple

Bookmark and Share
Residents of Guthrie may notice something a little different this week as the Relay for Life committee members invite everyone to “Paint the Town Purple” in effort to fight cancer, to see a brighter tomorrow and celebrate more birthdays.

The week-long event is their way of bringing awareness to the city of Guthrie by promoting healthy choices and fundraising for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life of Logan County 2012.

Purple week was kicked off on Sunday, April 29, with a group of Committee members hanging purple ribbons on poles throughout downtown Guthrie and down Division towards Mineral Wells Park. They are also inviting every Logan County business, home and classroom to go PURPLE for the week!

Tuesday, May 1 is the Companions for Life team will host a $7 hamburger cookout on the corner of Division and Harrison from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. All proceeds will benefit this year’s Relay for Life.

Friday, May 4th, will be the big night beginning at 7pm and rockin’ the night away until Saturday, May 5th, at 7am in Mineral Wells Park! Throughout the night they will have different ceremonies and lots of entertainment including the Survivor/Caregiver ceremony, balloon release, a large live and silent auction, Luminaria ceremony, Fight Back ceremony, a ton of fun games and lots of booths to buy food and goodies at.

Come and join to find out what Relay for Life is all about and why each one is personally Relay.

It’s the party of the year that you don’t want to miss.
