The annual Lake Charles Relay For Life cancer benefit, is drawing near.  It's a time where family, friends, and co-workers come together to raise money for cancer research.  A time where strangers, become allies fighting for one deserving cause.  Finally it's a time to honor those who've lost their battle, encourage those who are fighting the fight, celebrate with those who beat the disease, and an opportunity to participate in finding a cure.

Save the date!  Join the Lake City and surrounding areas at the 2017 Relay For Life , Friday May 19, at the Lake Charles Civic Center, from 6pm to midnight.  Whether you're walking for a loved one, yourself or just because, know that each step you take is making a difference.  There are many ways to join a relay.  Walk as an individual, run or organize a team comprised of family, friends, and neighbors by clicking here.  If you are a cancer survivor and want to walk in the Survivor Lap, click here.

If you can't attend this year's event, you can still help!  You can have a major impact, by simply making a donation.  Many local civic groups and organizations are doing just that, such as Queen of The South #14 OES.  They have joined others by sponsoring a team and set a goal for donations they hope reach, by asking members to give. To donate on their page click, here!  Other ways to get involved are to participate as a survivor or caregiver, volunteer the day of event, or become an American Cancer Society volunteer.  Lets come together and beat cancer forever!
