2005 Relay kicks off Thursday

The 2005 Lincolnton Relay for Life Kick-off Party will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at First Baptist Church in Lincolnton.
Relay for Life is the signature fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society. Teams of walkers from area businesses, schools and organizations will pledge a week-end of walking on the track at Lincolnton High School May 6-7 in return for pledges to the America Cancer Society.
All team captains, participants, survivors and anyone interested in participating are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided by Fatz Cafй and entertainment by the Right Track Band.
Lincoln County is nationally-recognized for its fund-raising efforts. Last year the Lincolnton Relay and the East Lincoln Relay together raised over $350,000 and ranked fifth in the nation for that effort.
The Lincolnton Relay raised about $145,000, and the East Lincoln Relay raised more than $200,000.
