Relay for Life changes date, format for 2017

Posted: Tuesday, Mar 14th, 2017

The 2017 12-hour American Cancer Society (ACS) Relay for Life of Florence fundraiser will be July 22 at the Florence Events Center.

Until last year, the 16-year-old Florence event was a 24-hour campout held at Miller Park during the first part of August.

Another change, according to Relay for Life Community Manager Amy Bickleman, was the resignation of the three Florence Relay chairpersons, Bobby Harris, Rae Henry and Harold Kinney.

According to Bickleman, all three announced at the Feb. 20 monthly meeting that they would be resigning because of “personal reasons.”

“I can only tell you what they told us, which was it was just all too much for them. That could mean they have other things going on in their personal life. I don’t know and I’m not going to assume specifics,” Bickleman said.
