The American Cancer Society Relay For Life Community of Wilson County is hosting Purple Ribbon Day activities through Friday, Jan. 27, in Floresville.

Purple Ribbon Day is an opportunity for communities to recognize and honor cancer survivors and their caregivers. “Purple Ribbon Day gives us a chance to meet with schools, worksites, faith-based organizations, and other groups and share the message of Relay,” said Cindy Ritzen, American Cancer Society volunteer.

“It also opens the door for us to invite cancer survivors and caregivers to our Relay For Life event as our special guests for a night of celebration and hope,” Ritzen said.

You can participate in Purple Ribbon Day activities by wearing purple, displaying purple ribbons or bows, or decorating your store windows with purple paint. “We hope to have double amount of survivors and caregivers join us at our Relay event,” said Chrystal Coble.

Relay For Life is the world’s largest movement to end cancer. It brings together more than 3.5 million people each year to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Relay For Life events are held in more than 5,000 communities throughout the United States and 20 other countries. Since 1985, these events have raised more than $3 billion to help support the society’s lifesaving mission, while providing an opportunity for cancer survivors to celebrate their experience and make lasting connections with others.

Relay For Life of Wilson County will be held Saturday, May 5, in the Jack Lane Stadium in Poth.
