The seventh annual Celebration of Life Cancer Walk is set to hear the starting gun at 9 a.m., on Saturday at Voiers' Park on North Country Club Road, across the street from the Starmax Family Entertainment Center.
Registration starts at 8 a.m.
During a recent live radio interview with John Krehbiel, Joanna Costilla said, "As of now we have 25 teams in place, but expect 50-plus teams to sign up," She is the patient advocate.
Each group or business that enters a team will walk the Voiers' Park scenic course to Help raise money and awareness for cancer support in Deming and Luna County. Last year, the COL raised over $64,000 that was used locally. This year they are
hoping for $70,000.
In each of the previous COLs, the group has chosen "Cancer Warriors," those who carry on the fight in hopes of seeing the disease eradicated in our lifetime. This year, the COL will ask all survivors who have surpassed 10 years, or more,
to continue to live life to its fullest.
Cancer support is located at 2300 E. Pine St; inside Mimbres Valley Learning Center.
