18th Annual La Porte County Relay For Life

By: American Cancer Society Last Updated: June 17, 2013

relayLogoCelebrating its 18th year in La Porte County, Relay For Life is the county's largest event celebrating, remembering and fighting back against cancer. The American Cancer Society holds this event annually to raise funds to support local cancer patients. La Porte County has services providing rides to treatment, fitting patients with wigs and multiple programs to follow them through their journey.

This event is open to the public and by having the community attend, you can buy dinner or lunch, play some games, bounce in a inflatable house, watch the LaPorte firemen against the Michigan City firemen in a tug-of-war, decorate a Luminaria bag in honor of someone you love, and most of all -- make a difference in the community.

WE need your support -- come visit us and be part of ending cancer in this century! Questions, contact Kim Olesker 269.612.0492.
