Relay for Life Bell County is next Saturday and this week, to kick off the event, Middlesboro is encouraged to Paint the Town Purple.

The initiative is a competition that allows a business to show their support for the cause of fighting cancer.

Your involvement with the American Cancer Society is a positive promotional opportunity for your business, positioning you as a concerned citizen actively supporting the fight against cancer.
