Relay for life Kickoff
LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Cancer survivors and their loved ones will soon come together to participate in this year’s ‘Relay for Life’ in Lawton.
It’s a special event for survivors to celebrate, despite what they’ve been through. Participants will engage in different activities to connect with each other, and know a strong support system is available to them.
Co-chair for Relay of life Comanche County, Jessica Goodman-Upchurch said donations for the event help fund research and patient care programs. She said every dollar makes a difference.
“A lot of people don’t realize that when they give money to relay for life no matter where they are that it stays in the state and stays in their community and the different programs that are associated with the American cancer society,” Upchurch said.
Local entertainers will also be present to keep attendees energized throughout evening.
The big event will happen on May 20th at Bentley Gardens starting at 4 p.m..
Those interested in signing up, or donating, can find more information on the organization’s website.
