Schuyler County committee members plan annual 'Relay for Life' event

One local community is in the process of planning its annual 'Relay for Life' event.

Members of the Schuyler County 'Relay for Life' committee spent Monday evening coming up with ideas for this year's event.

'Relay for Life' allows those in the community to remember and fight back for those with cancer. The Schuyler County committee is looking for additional teams and members as they begin planning for the 2014 event.

As of now, Schuyler County's "Relay for Life" is tentatively scheduled for the end of August or early September. Committee members are asking for community input as to which dates will work best and which different events should be planned.

"Relay's been in Schuyler County since 2001, and we had a great committee in years past, but they're tired and it's time for some new people to step up and take over," said Brenda Carlin, an American Cancer Society Community Representative.
