Relay for Life finds new home at soccer fields in Lady Lake

The annual Relay for Life will be held in April at the Rolling Acres Sports Complex soccer fields in Lady Lake.

The American Cancer Society’s event was previously held in The Villages, but briefly moved to Lady Lake before it was absorbed into the Leesburg Relay for Life. The newest incarnation of the event is billed as the Tri-County Relay for Life and is set for April 23.

The Lady Lake Commission on Monday night agreed to waive any fees that would be associated with the event. Parks and Recreation Director Mike Burske noted that the Relay for Life will end at 9 p.m. and will not be an all-night event as it has been in years past.
