Last Hancock County Relay for Life 

ELLSWORTH — For its final hurrah, the Hancock Country Relay for Life will “unmask the cure” in a Mardi-Gras-style event on Saturday, June 4, at the Ellsworth Elementary-Middle School track to benefit the American Cancer Society.  

Hancock County has supported the American Cancer Society through these events for the past 23 years, but the leadership committee has decided to make this year’s Relay for Life the last.  

The Don Clark Memorial 5K will begin at 8 a.m. with the relay kicking off at 11 a.m. and continuing until 11 p.m.   

The relay this year will include the traditional opening ceremony, luminaria ceremony, a paint night, touch-a-truck, a Mr. and Mrs. Relay with Mrs. Maine International Rebekah Hodgson, raffles, music, lap themes, lap beads and more.  

The opening ceremony will begin at 1 p.m. with guest speaker Cora Fahy, who will talk about her journey through cancer. Participants are encouraged to decorate umbrellas to take around the track. A special luminaria ceremony is scheduled for 9 p.m. followed by a silent lap and bell ringing.
