‘Paint the Town Purple’ April 19 for Relay for Life

Help spread a message of hope. Join the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of North Manchester and “Paint the Town Purple” on Saturday, April 19 beginning at 10 a.m. Businesses, community organizations and individuals are being asked to show their support for the event and help raise awareness for the fight against cancer by decking out the town—including homes, restaurants, businesses, meeting halls or other areas—in purple.

“We want everyone to see purple and to think about celebrating, remembering and fighting back,” said Sebrena Cline, Paint the Town Purple organizer. “Whether you use purple chalk to write an uplifting message, display a different reminder each day about important cancer screenings or dress a mannequin in Relay gear, it’s all about letting people know that there is hope. The sky is the limit on what you can do to decorate and send that message.”

Paint the Town Purple supports Relay For Life of North Manchester, an event that brings the community together in the fight against cancer. This year, the event will be held Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. at Market Square between Main and Second Streets in North Manchester. Individuals and teams—made up of family, friends, co-workers and community groups—will unite to fundraise, walk the track, socialize, take in the entertainment, and participate in a variety of activities going on throughout the event. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
