FRUITA, Colo. - The kick-off party for Fruita's cancer survivor awareness event Relay for Life was Saturday night.
Organizers said this was the initial get-together for everyone who wishes to participate in the event later this year.
“The big thing I think that's happening this year is the city's involvement,” said local Relay for Life organizer. “The city of Fruita is taking a really active role in the event this year.”
So far 27 people have signed up to race, but there’s still plenty of time to join in. The actual relay doesn't start until June 27th.
