The American Cancer Society Relay for Life is Saturday, April 22 at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana, Ark. 

The word cancer has become such an everyday word. Chances are, you know or have had a family member or close friend that has been touched by this awful disease. Relay for a family member, friend, coworker, and everyone else that has had to face this difficult disease. Relay so that one hopeful day, no one has to hear those words or lose that battle.

"The American Cancer Society is in full force in Texarkana," says Katie Stone, Relay for Life Volunteer. "We have superb teams signed up this year and some great fundraisers lined up for the day. The Relay is open to the public. Our amazing fundraisers this year including BBQ plates, games, sweets, sno cones and many others. As you can see from the photos below, we have a lot of fun at the Relay. Come out and help us raise money as we walk laps, listen to great music and celebrate our survivors."

You can join in the fight against cancer. Grab a friend and go to the Relay for Life on Saturday. Cheer on the others walking or get in the walk. There will be survivors doing a special walk and having folks on the sidelines showing support is very important.

The event will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Four States Fairgrounds, 3700 E 50th St, Texarkana, Arkansas 71854, from 3:30PM to 9:30PM. There will be lots of events and food and fun for the family.
