The Maple Ave. Walmart's Relay for Life team is getting an early start on raising money for the American Cancer Society.
"Team Sparks of Hope" is having a bake sale and food wagon this weekend to raise money for Relay for Life. The bake sale is from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday at the Maple Ave. Walmart.
"We have all kinds of stuff. We have brownies, we have cupcakes of many, many flavors. We have no-bakes, peanut butter eggs. We have all kinds of stuff that people have chipped in and made cookies, cookies, cookies," said Heather Grimm, a member of the team.
The Walmart Foundation donated five-thousand dollars to the team, but Team Sparks of Hope wants to raise about twelve-thousand more dollars before June.
"We had a bake sale fundraiser for one of our associates and we made over one-thousand dollars and we're hoping to do that again this weekend."
Relay for Life is June 8-9 at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds. You can register your team at www.relayforlife.org
