The Taneytown Relay For Life will be held in June, but the kickoff event Tuesday brings together past participants, those interested in participating in the future, cancer survivors, family members and a new co-chair of the event, Angela Bonarrigo.

“My mother died of breast cancer back in 1993 just before her 49th birthday. Since 2010, our team has raised almost $45,000. And we are currently at $6,001 for the 2019 Relay For Life of Taneytown,” Bonarrigo said. “A few months ago, I was asked to become the co-chair of the event.”

Tuesday’s event will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Flick’s Pub, 100 Antrim Blvd. Those attending are also asked to bring a canned good.
