The 2020 Lincoln County Relay For Life event will look a lot different this year, with plans to hold an online event on August 1 beginning at 5 p.m. The local Relay Event Leadership Team has now canceled all live, in-person events due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases and the dangers those events would pose to cancer survivors.
