Luminaria display in support of 2012 Relay for Life

7/6/2012

July 6th, 2012, Elko, NV –
This year, we will once again help to save lives and raise awareness by taking part in the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  The relay, scheduled July 21-22 at the Elko High School Track, is a life-changing event that gives people in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

On Thursday July 19th, NNRH hopes to make a highly visual statement to our community by surrounding the hospital with a pink luminaria display after dark.  300 bags are needed to surround the 1/2 mile circumference of the hospital driveway!  Bags are on sale in the hospital gift shop for $5 each, may be purchased and decorated on Thursday afternoon’s from 3:30 – 5:00 pm in the cafeteria, or you may call 748-2163 to place your order.

The NNRH team is also in charge of the official Relay for Life Luminaria ceremony at the EHS track on Saturday July 21st, and will display the pink lighted luminaria bags there!

Join us in the fight against cancer.  All proceeds go to the 2012 American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
