SPRINGVILLE — The First United Methodist Church in Springville will host the annual celebration and awards ceremony for the Springville Relay for Life on Feb. 14. This summer event raises money and educational awareness about cancer. The awards ceremony will begin at 6 p.m.

The actual relay event will be held from noon – midnight on June 8 at the Springville-Griffith High School. In addition to the relay itself, the event will feature an entertainment tent, auction and luminary ceremony, to honor those who have lost their lives to cancer.

Director of Special Events for the American Cancer Society Crystal Page said that Springville raised $80,000, during last year’s relay. This year’s goal is $100,000.

“People in Springville and the surrounding areas have always shown great support,” Page said, adding that this will be the village’s seventh relay year.

Approximately 376 participants participated in Springville, last year. Eighty-four survivors also took part, in the event.

Page said that the February awards and celebration ceremony is important, because it serves as an educational event and showcases survivors. She urged everyone from the Springville and surrounding areas to attend.

“[The event] really gets people excited about the relay itself,” she said.

The theme for this year’s relay is Superheroes.

“There are few people in the world who haven’t been affected by cancer in some way, either directly or indirectly,” Page said.
