Fundraising fair Wednesday for Relay for Life teams

A fundraising fair for teams participating in Rome’s Relay for Life will be held Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the State School for the Deaf.

Team captains and members can meet with various local merchants regarding ways to raise funds for the event.

New teams are welcome to register and learn about the annual Relay for Life fundraiser that is scheduled for the weekend of June 2-3 at NYSSD. The overnight community event includes teams camping out at the site, and taking turns circling the NYSSD track while raising money to benefit cancer research and help those afflicted with the illness. It also helps recognize those who have defeated cancer, and honors the memory of cancer victims.
