Relay for Life Kickoff Meeting Planned October 11

Relay for Life of Beckham and Custer Counties will have a kickoff meeting on Monday, October 11, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The American Cancer Society annual event will have the kickoff meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the Wellness Center on the SWOSU campus. Anyone who is interested in being part of the annual event is invited.  Additional information is available from Olga Castaneda at 806.663.3052.

The Relay for Life event is planned for April 22, 2022, on the SWOSU campus. Relay for Life movement is the world’s largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. Each year, the event celebrates people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones, and take action for lifesaving change. 

Veronica Aguinaga, assistant professor in the SWOSU Department of Education and one of the Relay for Life organizers, said when someone is diagnosed with cancer, it impacts everyone – mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, grandparents, neighbors, and friends. However, as a community, everyone can attack and ultimately defeat cancer. 

Relay for Life consists of teams of people participating in a celebration of cancer survivors, cancer awareness, entertainment, and raising money to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society.
