Knoxville Relay for Life kicks-off at Neyland Stadium

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – East Tennessee Relay for Life fundraising season is off to a running start, without having to run.

Knoxville Metro Relay for Life’s 2016 kick-off party is Thursday at 6:00 p.m. in Neyland Stadiums sky box. The event offers a sneak peek of what Relay for Life is all about.

Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. WATE 6 On Your Side sponsors relay for life events in East Tennessee.

Organizers said people might be deterred from participating in Relay for Life because they may feel they have to run or be athletic, but that’s not the case. They said the main goal of the event is to celebrate more birthdays and save lives.
