Relay For Life Kick Off 

Tuesday was the official kickoff for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Penobscot.Bangor area community members and Relay team captains gathered tonight at the Bangor Banquet and Conference Center to talk about launching their fundraising efforts for this year…This year’s theme is “Birthdays” because every dollar that relay for life of Penobscot raises goes to help those with cancer live to see another birthday.The relay has become so popular that it has to be moved to a new location this year.It will be held at University of Maine track.With the relay being held at the UMaine track this year, there will be some new set up rules and procedures.To take a look at those, or if you have any question on how to start your own team you can visit the Relay for Life website at
