The 2012 Ravalli County Relay for Life will be kicked-off Monday, Jan 16, at the Bitterroot River Inn Grand Ballroom with a celebration, food and drink and information about how to get your team together.

The American Cancer Society event is held each summer in the Bitterroot Valley. Formerly it was at Hamilton's Haynes Field. Recently, it has found new life in the newest track in the valley at Corvallis.

The Kick-off "open house" event will be from 5pm to 8pm, Monday at the Grand Ballroom with friends, family members and co-workers planning this year's relay - an overnight walk around the track to raise money for the fight against cancer.

Money raised helps with everything from wigs to kids cancer camps, Road to Recovery programs to Cancer Resource Centers and more. Plus, on the Kick-off night, if you register your team, you might win a door prize.

If you register your team by March 31, you'll save 50 percent on your registration fee. For more information call Robin at 777-7804 or check the Ravalli County Relay for Life website.
