Relay for Life starts today

Local residents will put their best feet forward to help fight cancer at the annual Relay For Life of Rowan County this evening.
Gates open at the Rowan County fairgrounds on Julian Road at 3 p.m. Opening ceremonies will take place at 7 p.m. and the relay will continue overnight until 7 a.m. Saturday.
The walk will begin with a survivors lap.
Events will be taking place throughout the American Cancer Society fundraiser, including a luminaria ceremony at 8:45 p.m. There will be food, entertainment and games.
From 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. today, Rowan Regional Medical Center will have its mobile mammography van at the fairgrounds. To pre-register and make an appointment for a mammogram, call Rhonda Puckett at 704-210-5924.
A limited number of mammograms may be provided for the uninsured. Call Puckett to start paperwork for that.
Rowan Regional asks that patients arrive 15 minutes ahead of their appointments to complete paperwork. The mammogram takes about 15 minutes.
The American Cancer Society recommends that women over the age of 40 have an annual mammogram.
Relay for Life raises money for Cancer Society programs and research.
