Participants are wanted to attend the 2012 Relay for Life of Kent Kickoff event at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 at the Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost and fight back against the disease.

The Relay for Life of Kent will run June 1-2 at French Field at Kent-Meridian High School. The event helps raise money for cancer research and care.

Teams camp out at French Field during the relay and members take turns walking around the track. Each team must have at least one representative on the track throughout the event. Teams use the months leading up to the relay to raise funds.
