Have you, or someone you know, had their life changed by cancer? If you could be a part of a movement that is in over 25 countries and more than 5,200 communities, would you? Do you ever think about ways you could make a positive change in the community? Then join LaBelle’s Relay For Life!

The wildly successful and life-changing event, Relay for Life LaBelle, has officially kicked off! “Lets get this party started! Relay For Life LaBelle is helping to create more birthdays. So far we have 8 returning teams and 2 new teams already signed up and a couple new teams that have committed to join. We need more,” exclaims the event’s lead organizer, Vicki Reynolds. The 2020 event boasts plenty of entertainment, fun games, silly contests with even sillier prizes, silent auctions, raffles, good food, all for a good cause.

While there are a variety of ways to help this event with its fundraising efforts, one of the first is casting your vote for the theme. The choices for 2020 themes include: Under The Sea, Little Golden Books, Fairy Tales and Nursery Rhymes, Luau For Life, Carnival For A Cure, or Birthday Party.

“Come vote on the 2020 theme by placing pocket change, or green bills, in the bucket with the theme you like. The bucket with the most money will be our theme for the season. The list of possible themes is on our Relay For Life of LaBelle, FL Facebook page,” added Vicki. Everyone is invited to attend the next Relay for Life LaBelle meeting on Sept 9, at First Baptist Church Social Hall at 6:00 p.m. come to vote and/or join in the fun and make a difference!
