Relay for Life events
The following are Relay for Life of Rowan County February events:
Like bowling? Become a member of the Relay For Life Once-a-Month Bowling Club. Food Lion’s A/R Relay team wants to challenge the whole community to get involved in the Relay Wide World of Sports for the entire year.
Gather a team of five members and select one Monday of four each month to bowl at 6 p.m. at Woodleaf Lanes, 1811 W. Jake Alexander Blvd.
Teammates can be different from month-to-month as long as there is a team of five. The cost is $15 per person each month and entitles the team member to two games, rental shoes, a practice bowling pass and an end-of-year party in January 2012. In addition, $5 of each member’s cost goes to Relay For Life.
To register, contact Frances at 704-603-4168 or email@example.com.
