Relay event about show of support

Cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries, spares no demographic and is oblivious to the devastating impact it has on families and communities.

But the fight against cancer remains as important as ever.

That is what the Lawrence County Relay For Life is all about. The annual event celebrates those who have beaten the disease, pays the ultimate respect to those who have succumbed to cancer and helps raise money for research in the hopes of eradicating the disease completely one day.

It is not too late to get involved and help make a difference, whether that means participating in the Relay yourself, supporting someone who is or simply coming out to the fairgrounds Saturday to show support and enjoy the festival-like atmosphere.

You can still sign up or get more information at Relay For Life on Lawrence County’s Facebook page.

Over the years, Lawrence County has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to go towards cancer research in the hopes of eliminating the disease completely.

We are not there yet, but thanks to events like the Relay For Life, we are closer than ever before.
