Relay for Life to hold new carnival event
MIDDLEBURY — Each year, Middlebury College hosts the Relay for Life, a major fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Organized predominantly by students, the event involves live music, food and a relay. This year organizers have changed the event’s format from an overnight event to a six-hour carnival at Battell Beach, the field behind the College’s Battell residence Hall on Sunday, April 28, from noon to 6 p.m.
The Relay for Life spring event takes place annually on the Middlebury College campus to honor individuals and families that have been affected by cancer. The fundraiser supports often ground-breaking cancer research.
This year, instead of the traditional walking-based relay event, organizers have created a family-friendly carnival that will offer lots of food, lawn games, bottle and ring toss, a dunk tank, a bounce house, live entertainment and traditional Relay For Life events such as the survivors lap and luminaria ceremony.
Admission to the carnival is $10 and all ages are welcome.
