After the June 19 wrap-up meeting, the Venango County Relay for Life committee will begin to plan next year's 25th anniversary event, according to Carey. During the survivor lap, cancer survivors and people now affected by the disease walk the track to be cheered and supported by friends, family and caregivers. For the next lap, the survivors will be joined by their supporters for the Caregivers' Lap, and then a Team Captains Lap will follow.

At the same time, Co-Chair Gayle DiBenedetto continues to help by supporting planning, logistics, and survivorship activities.

The festivities will start with team fundraising, bouncy castles and slides, yoga, karate, and tattoos done by Wheels of Faith, a silent auction, and the opening of the Relay Store all at 4 p.m. This is the second year that Mcdonald hosted the relay at its downtown park.
