Relay for Life is coming up Friday, May 4th. It's time to get your teams together and walk for life!

Relay for Life is an emotional evening for all involved. Whether you are a survivor, supporter, or just want to be a part of a great cause you will be affected by this walk.

The evening starts out with the survivor lap and then continues with team members walking laps throughout the evening to raising money. It's a great way to celebrate, remember and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow cancer survivors and caregivers.

There will also be a Luminaria Ceremony, games, food and lots of fun!

I encourage you to come out and experience the most moving walk you will ever be a part of; in celebration, honor or support of someone you love!
