Largo Hosts Relay for Life
LARGO - On Friday, April 16, walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Largo. Teams of Largo residents and surrounding communities will gather at Largo Central Park (101 Central Park Dr, Largo) for an overnight relay to celebrate survivors, honor lost loved ones, and raise money to support the ongoing fight against cancer.
Relay For Life of Largo kicks off at 6:00 p.m. with a Survivors Lap, where all cancer survivors are invited to circle the park together to celebrate the victories they've achieved over cancer. After sundown, those who have been touched by cancer or have lost their lives to this disease will be honored in the event's Luminaria Ceremony. This event is open to the public and will include live music, food, games, and a traditional pancake breakfast starting at approximately 8:00 a.m. on April 17th.
Funds raised at Relay For Life of Largo will enable the American Cancer Society to support local services and resources for cancer patients and their families. Funds also support critical cancer research and community education programs designed to teach people how to reduce their risk of developing cancer.
The American Cancer Society is a nationwide community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy, and service.
Participate in this great event and help fight cancer one step at a time! For more information about Relay For Life of Largo or to become involved, visit www.relayforlife.org/largofl.
