Friday, January 25, 2013 - 11:55 am

MASSENA -- The American Cancer Society will celebrate Relay For Life  by “painting” downtown Massena purple on Saturday.

Volunteers will be tying purple ribbons around poles lining Main Street.

Participants will gather at 11 a.m. in the Massena Town Hall parking lot

“Paint the Town Purple” is promoting the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Massena/Louisville.

The Massena/Louisville Relay for Life this year is set for Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8 at Louisville Community Center, Arena Drive, Louisville.

Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbeque, dance and take turns walking or running around a track, relay-style, to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants light hundreds of luminaria candles around the track in a touching ceremony honoring cancer survivors as well as paying tribute to those lost to the disease.
