The Relay for Life of Greater Attleboro to benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS) will be holding the kickoff for its reimagined 2024 event from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 22, at the Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park St., Attleboro, with a snow date of Feb. 28 at the same time.
The kickoff at the museum, a community partner of the relay, will share information about this year’s 26th event, which is scheduled for 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday, June 8, at Norton High School. The relay has changed from an 18-hour overnight event to one day only to attract more people and families.At the kickoff, the top fundraisers from the 2023 event will be presented with awards and a preliminary relay schedule will be shared. The kickoff is open to anyone interested in learning more about the relay.
The Relay For Life of Greater Attleboro draws teams and participants from most Attleboro area communities, including Attleboro, North Attleborough, Mansfield, Norton, Plainville, Rehoboth, Seekonk and Wrentham, but interested people from any community are encouraged to attend both the Feb. 22 kickoff and June’s event.
