Event Description

“Celebration of Real Life Superheroes” - A video honoring local individuals affected by cancer.
The Relay For Life of Franklin County invites you and anyone you know to send us pictures of individuals who have been touched by cancer. These pictures will be edited into a beautiful video to be used at our Super-hero themed community event on June 27th, at our Wrap Up Party on July 22nd, and will be posted on our Facebook page at Relay For Life of Franklin County, IL. It may be submitted to local media as well. Pictures do not only need to be of individual residents from Franklin County. If you are part of the Franklin County community and want to include someone you would like remembered/honored who does not live here, please feel free to do so. This video is intended to represent lives touched by cancer that have a tie, in some way, to Franklin County.
Please send pictures to me, Theresa Bates, Survivorship Chair for Relay For Life of Franklin County. Although it is preferable to have your picture(s) electronically emailed to me at, you may mail them in for us to scan in electronically to:
