Pottsville Relay for Life to Return This Summer

Pottsville Relay co-chairs Peggy Davis and Mary Jane MacLaughlin announced earlier this month that the 2021 Pottsville Relay for Life will be held Friday, July 30 from 4-10 p.m. at Pottsville’s Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The 2020 Relay had to be canceled due to COVID 19 restrictions.

The theme of the 2021 campaign is “Carnival of Hope” and the Relay committee is actively seeking teams to participate in the event.

Among featured events that day are the Survivors Celebration at 6:30 p.m. and the Luminaria Ceremony at 9 p.m.

Cancer survivors, if not already registered, may register by calling Survivors Chairperson Mary Jane MacLaughlin (570-739-2739).

Anyone interested in establishing a team and/or volunteering for the Pottsville Relay for Life should call MacLaughlin (570-739-2739) or email Davis at
