FAIRLEA -
     Saturday, March 15, in Greenbrier County, community members involved in the Relay for Life came out to the Greenbrier Valley Mall in Fairlea to spread the word and raise money for their big event this summer.
     All the different relay teams came together to draw attention to Relay for Life in their Kick-Off event.
     Organizers said the teams got a chance to raise some money and get ideas for the actual relay coming up in June.
      Event Chair Melissa Chambers said, "The community comes into the mall, they ask what we're doing they get reminded that we're here. It may not be a big fundraising day for everybody here but it gets the creativity going it gives people motivation it gets the ideas going."
