Relay for life planned for Thursday

The American Cancer Society will hold its 2012 Relay For Life Kickoff and its Great American Smokeout on Thursday.

The kickoff and the Great American Smokeout strive to help smokers quit for life.

Thursday’s kickoff event will take place at 6:30 p.m. inside North Plains Mall at the JC Penney store entrance.

During the event, a young cancer survivor will share his success story of battling cancer. Also, two singers will perform to inspire smokers to quit. Cancer survivors and caregivers are especially invited.
