Bastrop County Relay For Life 2006 - Page 1
The purpose of the Relay for Life is to celebrate survivorship. It is a team event to fight cancer! This year it was held May 19 and 20 at Bastrop High School's Erhard Field. This is the 9th annual celebration and remembrance. This event is made up entirely of volunteers and benefits the American Cancer Society and the Bastrop unit. There is walking, running, camping out, games, and entertainment-but mostly it is to honor the survivors of cancer and remember those who have lost their fight with cancer. Money raised goes to cancer research. By the next Relay for Life, which will be the 10th one, it is hoped that this Bastrop/Smithville event will reach the one million dollar mark raised for cancer research! Relay for Life co-chairs for 2006 are Betty Rucker and Cynthia Dickson.
