Relay for Life moves ahead
Plans are moving ahead for Richland Parish’s Relay for Life event.
One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. The funds raised at Relay for Life save lives by funding cutting-edge cancer research, early detection and prevention education, advocacy efforts, and life-affirming patient services.
This year’s event will be held from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. May 15 at the Delhi High School track.
A team captain meeting at 6 p.m. April 23 at the Delhi Hospital classroom.
Relay for Life is a moving celebration of cancer survivorship. The event begins with a Survivors Lap in which cancer survivors take a victory lap around the track. A candlelight ceremony is held later in the evening to honor cancer survivors and remember those who who have been lost to this disease.
Organizers are currently building a list of survivors to honor at this year’s event. To add someone, please contact Phyllis New at 878-2241 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Krysti Beam at 878-2241.
