Sign up to stride against cancer

Starting on April 16, walkers will go around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Largo. Teams will gather at Largo Central Park, 101 Central Park Drive, for an overnight relay to celebrate survivors, honor lost loved ones and raise money to support the fight against cancer. Relay for Life of Largo kicks off at 6 p.m. with a Survivors Lap, where all cancer survivors are invited to circle the park together to celebrate the victories they have achieved over cancer. After sundown, those who have been touched by cancer or have lost their lives to this disease will be honored in the luminaria ceremony. Funds raised will enable the American Cancer Society to support local services and resources for cancer patients and their families. Proceeds also support critical cancer research and community education programs designed to teach people how to reduce their risk of developing cancer. For information, visit
