One Day. One Night. One Hope.
It is with that conviction that participants will converge at the Lehighton High School football stadium this weekend for the 12th annual Relay For Life of Lower Carbon County and Surrounding Areas.
Free and open to the public, the event kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday, and runs for 24 hours until 10 a.m. Sunday. All proceeds benefit the Carbon-Tamaqua Unit of the American Cancer Society.
Cheryl Haas, event chair, said the theme of this year's event is "Carnival for a Cure."
