The East County will continue its battle against cancer beginning tonight at Lakewood Ranch's Relay for Life.
The Olympic-themed event, which runs from 7 p.m., April 30, to 1 p.m., May 1, at Lakewood Ranch High School, 5500 Lakewood Ranch Blvd., gives individuals the chance to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have battled or been lost to any form of cancer, while raising funds for cancer research and programs the American Cancer Society offers to cancer patients and their families.
The event will kick off with a survivors lap, and the luminaria ceremony will follow at 9:30 p.m., April 30.
