MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Relay for Life is coming to Mount Vernon to provide all city residents a chance to come together for a common cause in the fight against cancer.

The overnight event will take place beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 14 and continuing until Saturday morning at the Mount Vernon High School. There will be a Relay Team meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday to discuss last minute arrangements.
