Relay for Life teams are needed for the planned summer event. Anyone
interested in creating a team for the Relay for Life of Choctaw
County must register by March 15.
To register call the Choctaw County Chamber of Commerce at 285-3778
with your name, name of your organization and contact information.
Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams
also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay.
Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals,
schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life – all
aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer,
remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease.
“Relay For Life is all about our community uniting with the American
Cancer Society and supporting its efforts to create a world with less
cancer and more birthdays,” said Christin Waters, American Cancer
Society Staff Partner. “Volunteers and participants who are willing
to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a
commitment to let Choctaw County community members know that cancer
can be defeated.”
