GRAHAM COUNTY — A trio of events will help kick off the inaugural Tell Me a Story, April 27.

Tell Me a Story is a global initiative to support awareness and raise funds to help find a cure for ALS — known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The event is named for Tad Story, a Thatcher man currently battling the disease.

Things kick off with a 5k and fun run at 8:30 a.m. at Eldorado Park, at 14th Avenue and 20th Street, just south of Relation in Safford.

Cost is $10 per person.

At 2 p.m., the Big Kahuna Team Tug will take place at Volvo Rents in Thatcher. The Big Kahuna Team Tug will feature 12-15-man teams trying to pull a Mack truck the farthest and fastest.

Cost is $10 per person and all participants must be 16-years-old or older.

At 6 p.m., the closing ceremonies, auction and fund-raiser feast will take place at the Safford Elks. Music will be by Buenotempo.

Registration forms for all events may be found at the Health Services Building, 826 Main St., in Safford. For more information call Rene Prina at 928-965-0900 or e-mail
