NEWPORT-Cocke County Relay for Life 2013 committee members have big plans for this year's grand celebration, planned for Friday, May 3, at Cocke County High School's Hedrick Field.

Meeting Monday evening at Newport Health & Rehabilitation Center, the group continued to hammer out details for the highly anticipated event.

Currently 20 teams across Cocke County are hard at work raising money for the American Cancer Society. Their year's work will culminate at the annual celebration when all teams come together for a night of fun, music, food, more fundraising, and inspiration.

"We're still looking for more teams," said co-chair Katie Thomas on Monday. "It's not too late. We can continue raising money for this year up to September 1."

For more details, please see the Thursday edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
