DELAVAN--The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Walworth County invites team captains to the monthly team captain meeting scheduled for Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30 p.m. at Community Bank, 820 E. Geneva St., Delavan. Individuals interested in forming a team for this year's Relay For Life should also plan to attend.

The hour-long meeting will provide team captains the opportunity to interact with the event committee, share their fundraising progress, and ask questions about the event. Captains—who are responsible for organizing fundraisers--will be updated with new information regarding the event and will have the opportunity to share with the group their upcoming team fundraisers.

This year's Relay for Life of Walworth County will be held on July 18 and 19 at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn. The event raises awareness and funds in the fight against cancer.

Since 1985, Relay For Life has developed from one man running around a track for 24 hours to an international event taking place in more than 6,100 communities and 20 countries.

Relay For Life events are held at an athletic track, park, or fairground, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites at the event.
