The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Wabash County launched its fundraising season on Thursday, March 3, with a new theme and new goals.
 
The local Relay’s theme is “mash up” of history and reality television, according to the local Relay committee.
 
“Our sign that’s going to go everywhere says, ‘Cancer doesn’t have to be our reality because we learn from the past,’” Event Chair Amanda Wiley said. “For Indiana’s 200-year anniversary, we’re doing the historical (theme) and we also have the reality TV (theme).
 
“So the survivor’s tent are actually going to be ‘Survivor’ the TV show. … You can do Wabash history, Indiana history or you can do a reality TV show.”
