The Relay for Life of Berkshire County is coming up in September, but the Relay kick-off event is taking place Tuesday (April 20) at 7pm in virtual fashion! It’s still not the time for huge gatherings, so event lead Ray Gardino has planned a fun and informative kick-off event being held via the Zoom Meeting platform.

Ray, who will host the kick-off, was my guest on City Talk this past Sunday, and we got to chat all about the big kick-off event and also about the Relay itself which as of now is being planned as a full on-site event at the Guardian Life Insurance Company on South Street in Pittsfield on September 17th and 18th.

When we recorded the show, Ray was still working out the details on how people could get the link information, so he gives his email address out for those who wish to attend to request the link. If you are fortunate enough to be reading this article, you can get the link under the audio player (below), along with all the information that you might need to participate.
