SINKING SPRING, Pa. - Plans are being finalized for Berks County's largest Relay for Life event.
More than 1,000 walkers, representing more than 65 teams, are expected to take to the track at Wilson West Middle School for 24 hours, starting at noon next Fri., June 14.
The Relay for Life of Western Berks, now in its 10th year, has raised more than $1.25 million for the American Cancer Society.
Reule Johnson, the national vice president of Relay For Life, is scheduled to be on hand for this year's event, which has been nationally recognized for "customer satisfaction."
Anyone interested in participating in or donating to the Relay for Life event next weekend can do so online.
