This year Relay for Life of Baldwin County is participating in Paint the Town Purple. The fundraiser runs through Friday. This is an opportunity to not only donate money to the cause but also to show support by purchasing a purple bow for $5.
“You can hang them on your doors, mailboxes, anywhere you want to show your support of cancer and cancer survivors,” said Tindal.
Businesses within the community also hold fundraisers in support of Relay for Life.
On Monday, Gringos restaurant downtown will have a Relay for Life Spirit Night where 10 percent of sales will go toward Baldwin County Relay.
Relay for Life is slated for Friday at the Baldwin Braves Stadium. Activities will begin at 6 p.m. with an Easter Egg hunt starting at 6:30 p.m.
“All teams donated eggs for the hunt and each team has a prize egg that will have something different from candy in it,” said Tindal.
All prize eggs will be different ranging from $1 bills to small toys.
The opening ceremony begins at 7 p.m. starting with the survivor lap. Area cancer survivors and members of each relay team will take turns walking around the track at the stadium.
“I hope the whole community comes out to support these cancer survivors and those who lost the fight,” Tindal said. “It will mean a great deal to their family and friends.”
