Relay for Life organizing next year’s event

With the 2016 Relay for Life South Cameron County event a memory, event organizers are already planning for next year’s event.

Relay for Life is looking for motivated, passionate people who are leaders in their community to help plan and coordinate the 2017 Relay for Life South Cameron County.

Relay for Life is the signature fundraising event of the American Cancer Society and depends completely on volunteers to make the event a success.

South Cameron County includes Brownsville, Olmito, Rancho Viejo, Los Fresnos, Indian Lake, Laguna Madre, Laguna Vista, Laguna Heights, Bayview, Port Isabel and South Padre Island.

The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. on July 12, at Valley Regional Medical Center’s Texas Room in Brownsville.
