KINGMAN - There are only 10 days remaining before the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life begins in Kingman, and already more than $30,000 has been raised between 23 teams, with more than 400 participants.

But as the event draws closer, some teams are reaching out to local businesses - among other places - to get the public further involved in raising money for a cure.

Take the Frontier Communications team, for example. Already one of the Kingman Relay's top fundraisers, the team has made an agreement with Arby's whereby a portion of all the restaurant's sales made between 6 and 8 p.m. today will be donated to their Relay total.

The Mohave County Crewsers, another large fundraising team, has worked out a deal with Papa John's - on each Tuesday this month, for anyone who mentions Relay For Life while placing an order, Papa John's will donate 20 percent of the cost.

But other teams are providing their own incentives to those who donate, with one coming from a rather unexpected source. Management and Training Corporation, the company in charge of the Arizona State Prison - Kingman, has donated a grill built by the facility's own inmates to "Team Awesome!," a Relay team headed by melanoma survivor Cheri Smith.

The grill, which is propane-based, will be raffled off the morning of June 1, as the Relay draws to a close. Raffle tickets are $1 or $5 for six. To purchase tickets, call Smith at (928) 715-0047 or Debbie Francis at (928) 279-5468, or simply show up in front of the Safeway at 3125 N. Stockton Hill Road, where the grill will be on display from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday.

The Relay For Life is an all-night event designed by the American Cancer Society to spread awareness of the disease, its prevention, treatments and cures, and to celebrate those who have survived it - most Relays begin with a "survivors lap."

Throughout the night, members from each Relay team walk or run around a track, with at least one member from each Relay team on the track at all times. It is one of the largest, most extensive fundraising efforts in the world, raising hundreds of millions of dollars each year in hopes of one day finding a cure for the disease.

Kingman's Relay For Life begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 31, at White Cliffs Middle School, 4005 Grandview Ave. For more information on making donations or joining a Relay team, contact event coordinator Diane Auman at (928) 279-7731 or through e-mail at dianeauman4relay@yahoo.com, or visit Kingman's Relay For Life homepage at www.events.cancer.org/kingmanrelay.
