Paint it purple to create cancer awareness

-A A +A

The color is purple so get out your decorations as Tri- County officials have declared Monday, April 28, as “Paint the Town Purple Day.” This is an activity of the American Cancer Society in an effort to promote cancer awareness and gives individuals, teams and communities an opportunity to fight back against cancer.

A Proclamation was recognized recently by some area officials naming April 28, as “Paint the Town Purple Day” within the Tri-County municipalities.

Organizers of the Relay For Life of The Tri Counties are challenging the communities to paint the town purple, which is the signature color of the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life events. They are also holding a contest to see which businesses, churches and community members put up the most decorations.  Those participating in the contest will need to submit your photos for judging by May 1st, to Tracy Ridgeway.

The winner will be announced at the 2014 Relay For Life of The Tri Counties on May 2, at the Gilchrist County Agricultural Complex in Trenton, beginning at 6 p.m.  A commemorative paint can will be awarded to the winner.
