The program will highlight how the community has benefited from funds raised, and will honor cancer survivors and caregivers. Guests will have the opportunity to register a team for the annual Relay For Life event, which will be held on Friday April 20, 2018 at Benbrook Middle High School, 201 Overcrest Drive in Benbrook, beginning at 6:00p.m.

The Relay For Life movement unites communities across the globe to celebrate people who have survived cancer, remember loved ones lost, and take action to finish the fight once and for all. Relay For Life events are community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Teams participate in fundraising in the months leading up to the event. Relay For Life is the world’s largest fundraising event to fight every type of cancer in every community, with four million participants in 6,000 events worldwide in 2015.

“This is our community’s opportunity to help save lives from cancer by taking our message to more people and by raising more dollars to fund the fight,” said Tammi Cauthen, event chair. “Together, our efforts can make a big difference.”
