The new Relay for Life T-shirts are available in the Bookstore.

New on the shelves of the MSSU Bookstore are T-shirts promoting the upcoming Relay for Life.

The purple and grey shirts feature the slogan “MOSO for a Cure” and are available for only $10.

“The slogan ‘Finish the Fight’ is also on the T-shirts for this year’s event,” said Penny Richeson, who is coordinating the effort. “It’s part of one of the official logos for the American Cancer Society.”

The shirts went on sale last week and will be available until the day of the event, June 14.

The all-night event will include survivor and caregiver walks, and luminaries set up around the stadium track. There will be food vendors and games available to help raise funds.

Last week, Richeson attended Third Thursday in downtown Joplin to promote Relay for Life and hand out Pizza Hut vouchers which can be used on the fourth Tuesday of each month. When presented with the voucher, the restaurant will donate part of the proceeds to the cause.

To register a team to walk, or to donate or volunteer for the event, contact Richeson at ext. 9770 or visit www.relayforlife.org/joplinmo.
