The Troy Relay for Life team is all about making lives happier.
And that’s just what members did with a trivia night on May 16. Categories included Celebrity Name Game, Double Initials and Science and Nature.
All proceeds from the fundraiser support the Troy Relay for Life walk, which is scheduled from 6 p.m. May 29 to 1 a.m. May 30 at Tri-Township Park in Troy. Members of several teams join together and take turns walking to help raise pledged money for the American Cancer Society’s fight against the deadly disease. Community members are invited to join in for games, food and even a Hope Glows 5K taking place after dark.
To participate, donate or receive further information, contact the American Cancer Society office, 5 Schiber Court in Maryville at 618-288-2320.
