The Brownsburg community is a strong supporter of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life fundraiser each year. This year’s Brownsburg event will be held on Saturday, May 21st from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Brownsburg Town Hall Green.
For the 2016 event, the Brownsburg Relay for Life is aiming to raise more than $120,000 for the American Cancer Society. As of May 6, the event has raised nearly $65,000.
Relay for Life is a family friendly event and this year’s theme is “Games” so it’s sure to be fun for everyone! Each team will have game-themed booth set up with fun games, activities, items for sale, food, and more. A dunk tank, bounce house, and fire truck will add to the day’s fun.
