Relay For Life to be held Friday

Submitted by Summit County Relay For Life

The Montage Deer Valley Resort will host the 2016 Paint Park City Purple relay event on Friday, Aug. 19, from 6 to 10 p.m.

Organizers said 500 lives are saved daily from cancer, in large part as a result of successful local Relay For Life fundraising events. Last year, Utah volunteers and donors raised nearly $1.5 million, while the American Cancer Society invested over $4 million in research grants in Utah during 2015 alone. Summit County residents greatly benefit from that investment.

This Friday, Parkites will gather for a rewarding evening of live music, free food catered by the Montage, drinks, and of course, lots of fun as they walk for a cure. Don’t miss critically acclaimed recording artist Shane Jackman, Park City’s favorite band around town Take 5 and Salt Lake City’s The Hot Rocks as the community gathers to celebrate survivors and remember loved ones.
