Find your treasure and fight cancer

by -

Find your treasure and fight cancer. That’s the motto for Resale for Life, a huge rummage sale scheduled for Saturday.

Maricopa’s first Relay for Life event, which begins at 6 p.m. on March 25 and runs until 6 a.m. the following day, is dedicated to fighting cancer.  At least one member of each of the 38 teams will be walking over the course of the 12-hour event because ‘cancer never sleeps.’

Teams each have from 8-10 members. Five are high schools teams, and 26 represent local businesses and/or government.

“The event‘s focus is to raise $25,000 to help fight cancer and to honor at least 50 survivors and caretakers with a reception,” said team development chair Nancy Smith. 

Saturday’s rummage sale is part of that fundraising effort.

Community members are invited and encouraged to attend the Resale for Life, to find treasures while fighting cancer.

The sale begins at 8 a.m. and lasts until noon on Saturday at the Community of Hope Church parking lot, 18700 N. Porter Rd. (just south of Pacana Park).
