Team registration is underway for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Ascension Parish, set for April 30 at Cabela’s in Gonzales.

The event promotes cancer awareness and raises money for research to find a cure for cancer.

At the relay event, teams set up camps and host various fundraising events while at least one team member walks along a designated path throughout the event.

“Relay For Life draws attention to the progress being made in the fight against cancer,” said Penny Cade, Ascension Parish Relay For Life specialist. “Many participants are our family, friends and neighbors who have faced cancer themselves. Their involvement helps brings hope that, together, we can eliminate cancer as a major health problem.”

To register, visit or by calling (800) 227-2345.
