5K for Relay Benefit Run for the American Cancer Society Relay for life

5K for Relay is a benefit run for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life of Desoto County. Over the past two years, we have raised more than $12,000. Join us a participant, sponsor, volunteer or supporter this year.

Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. at Snowden Grove Park in Southaven, Miss.

Imagine … hundreds of runners, supporters and community businesses gather at dusk to run 3.1 miles in support of Relay For Life. As the sun sets, the last tenth of a mile is lined with glowing lanterns called luminarias – paper bags glowing with a light inside, each representing someone who has been affected by cancer. These bags will also line the track during the Relay For Life event next May, tying the two events together in support of those affected by cancer – patients, survivors, caregivers, colleagues and friends.

We are looking for partners to support the event and Relay For Life, an organization that funds volunteer efforts such as Road to Recovery, Look Good, Feel Better, cancer research, promotion of prevention, early screening practices, and more.

We are looking forward to bringing the community together on Sept. 24 to support the ACS and help bring a healthy and fun activity to its residents.
