“This is my first year working with Logan County’s Relay For Life and it has been a great experience,” said Molly Embry, Community Manager for Relay For Life American Cancer Society, Inc. “I’ve had the privilege of working with our amazing new chair, Taylor Dunlap. She has been involved with Relay in the past and it’s great to be able to work with someone who has such passion for the cause. We both have worked hard to get our footing in this new position and to bring some new ideas to Logan County. I’m excited to see the potential here in Logan County and continue to grow Relay within the community. We have plans for some great activities and have lots of teams coming out to celebrate and fundraise that night. We hope everyone will come join us to fight back against cancer.”
