PARIS – The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Oxford Hills is just around the corner.

Former and current cancer patients, their families, businesses, civic organizations and the public are invited to take part in the team event from 6 p.m. Friday, June 2, until midnight Saturday, June 3, at the Don Gouin Athletic Field.

Relay For Life is a family-oriented event where participants enjoy the camaraderie of a team and raise funds to support the activities of the American Cancer Society. Teams from companies, churches, organizations, hospitals and schools collect donations and camp out at the relay site, and when they are not taking their turn walking, they take part in other activities and enjoy entertainment.
