Tonight at 6 PM Norfolk’s Relay For Life event will kick off with its opening ceremony at the Johnny Carson Track and Field. Participants have been fundraising and planning the event for months, drawing over 450 participants, 42 teams and over $74,000. Relay For Life is the main fundraising event for the American Cancer Society to raise awareness, help those that have been affected and support research. The event has been conducted in over 5000 communities throughout the United States and is said to have raised over 3 billion since its inception in 1986. During Relay events, participants will assemble teams that camp out within the community. At these locations, team members take turns walking or running around a track for up to 24 hours, symbolizing how cancer never sleeps. The Norfolk Relay will last from 6PM until the closing ceremony at 7:00 AM on June 2nd. The event will also include a Survivor’s Lap at 6:15 PM, a Luminaria Ceremony at 9:30 PM and the Fight Back Ceremony at 10:00 PM. As the community unites for this cause, Northeast Nebraska Imaging Open MRI is proud to participate in the event and be a Copper sponsor.
