In preparation for the Camp Verde Relay for Life this year, local organizers are in the midst of a unique fund-raiser. The Relay for Life “Flush Cancer” fund drive involves transporting a purple toilet to various Camp Verde residents, who, for a donation of $20 can send it on to another specific person or for a $10 donation can just have it taken away. The toilet first was sent to Mayor Charlie German, who donated to the fight against cancer to have it sent to pharmacist Bob Simbric. The Camp Verde Relay for Life is May 30-31 on the track at Camp Verde High School’s football stadium. Courtesy photo
