"Relay for Life" preview on Mountain Lake Journal Extra
Plattsburgh residents gear up for the annual Relay for Life of Plattsburgh. On the show this week, I speak with organizers about the upcoming kick-off and the event itself. The interview with cancer survivor Candace Jock touched everyone in the studio as it was happening. Community Executive Joan Sterling of the American Cancer Society is also inspiring when she talks about her personal reasons for participating in the relay every summer.
The all night event in June celebrates survivors of the disease, and raises money to help find a cure.
The kick-off is Thursday, February 16 from 6pm to 8pm at Gilligan’s Getaway in Plattsburgh.
The actual Relay for Life is June 15-16 from 7pm to 7am at the Clinton County Fairgrounds.

This roundtable interview airs on Mountain Lake Journal Extra Thursday night at 8:30 on Mountain Lake PBS. It repeats on Friday at 6am and 12:30pm, and Sunday at 10:30am.
