JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Onslow County Relay For Life is honoring cancer survivors by bringing them together for a night of fun.
Thursday night’s “Survivors Social” at Fireflies Pottery Studio in Jacksonville was a fun way for local cancer survivors to come together and stay connected.
Fireflies offered a discount to cancer survivors so they could come out, paint, and connect with each other.
Event coordinator Amanda Terry said the social also helped to lift up survivors.
“[It’s to] honor them and to show people that even perfect strangers care about your happiness and your spirits.”
The Relay For Life event leadership team also has socials planned in Jacksonville for July and August. If you would like to get involved, please reach out through the Onslow County Relay For Life Facebook page.
