Relay kickoff

RUMFORD – Relay For Life will kickoff on Friday, May 20, at the Hosmer Field Complex starting at 5:30 p.m. with the opening ceremony and survivors lap. More than 20 teams, representing businesses, organizations, and families will participate in the 18-hour event, which concludes on Saturday with the Hole-in-One Golf Challenge starting at 11:30 a.m.

The Hole-In-One Golf Challenge For A Cure is new to the relay this year. The object is to purchase a numbered golf ball, which will be placed in a large bucket and raised by a crane high into the air. The crane will release the golf balls and they will drop down to the ground, with one lucky ball going into the golf cup; the winner receiving a cash prize of $500; $1,000 if the winner is present.

In the event that no golf ball falls into the golf cup, then the ball closest to the hole will be the winner. The golf balls are available through any of the relay teams and will be sold at the Relay For Life Rally Friday evening and up until 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

All proceeds will go toward cancer research.
