Since first establishing the Craighead County Relay for Life, the Jonesboro Jaycees have been active participants in the event, working to raise money to fund research to finally find a cure for cancer. No one among us doesn’t have a family member or friend whose life hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way.

This year, in addition to taking part in the Relay for Life event itself, we’ll also have a booth at the NEA Flea Market hosted by KFIN. We’ll be selling items donated by members and the public with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.

The NEA Fair Market will be on Saturday, May 30th at the NEA District Fairgrounds (map).

This year alone, Jaycees across America have raised more than $90,000. Let’s see what we can do about increasing that amount!

If you would like to donate to the Relay for Life, please visit our team page and click the Donate button. You can also use that page to purchase a Luminaria in honor of or in memory of a loved one who has overcome cancer, is still battling cancer, or has lost their battle with cancer. If you would prefer, you can download the Luminaria Order Form and mail it in along with your payment.
