Relay for Life of Beckham & Custer Counties is April 22 at SWOSU

Area communities will come together at Relay for Life of Beckham and Custer counties to collectively work toward defeating cancer on Friday, April 22, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

Everyone is invited to join us this year’s festivities as a survivor, caregiver, volunteer, sponsor or guest. The funds raised through Relay for Life will help honor survivors, remember loved ones, and support those who are currently receiving treatment along with their caregivers. 

Relay For Life of Beckham and Custer Counties is scheduled for 6 p.m. at the SWOSU Wellness Center.

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. It is not too late to form a team and help fight cancer! Follow these simple steps:
