Help kick off the Relay for Life of Mount Prospect/Prospect Heights at Fear the Knight-Conquer Cancer on Friday, Feb. 8 during the Prospect boys' basketball games.

Wear purple and cheer on the sophomore and varsity teams as they take on Elk Grove High School from 6 p.m. -- 9 p.m.

The evening will feature special activities focused on fundraising and promoting this year's upcoming Relay for Life walk, including:

• Fear the Knight-Conquer Cancer T-shirt sales, $10 each

• Raffle baskets

• 50/50 raffle

Most importantly, it's a chance to sign up for the Relay for Life walk, which will take place overnight Saturday, May 18 at Prospect High School. Learn more about the event, register your team, sign up a survivor and enjoy some basketball.

Relay for Life is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Last year's event in Mt. Prospect raised more than $85,000 for the American Cancer Society's fight against cancer, and we're aiming even higher this year!

This year's event will take place overnight Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19, in the Prospect High School stadium. From 6 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Saturday, each team will have individuals walking laps around the Prospect track in celebration of those who have survived cancer and in memory of those who have lost their battle. Throughout the night, there will be entertainment, concessions, a raffle, and several moving ceremonies.
