The event isn't till next April, but the Relay for Life of Adair County is getting a great head start.
The organization held their kick-off meeting in kirksville this evening.
Some teams who have already signed up attended to help pump things up.
The goal for this upcoming year is to raise $63,000 for the American Cancer Society to go towards cancer research.
The event is set to be held on April 13, 2013 at the Kirksville Primary School.
This time the 12 hour event will be earlier than usual from 1 p.m to 1a.m.
"We thought it would be better to help get more people out and involved.." said Relay for Life of Adair County Co-Chair Tom Johnson.
The title for the event this upcoming year will be "Dream BIG, Hope BIG, Relay BIG."
The organization would like to see more cancer survivors and teams sign up this year.
