Relay For Life of Ouachita Parish took place on April 15th 2016 at The Ike Hamilton Expo Center. This year’s theme was Western and we were “Giving Cancer the Boot.”  Relay for Life is the largest fundraiser benefiting The American Cancer Society, patient services and Cancer Research.  Many people joined the event, despite the rain, to help raise awareness and much needed funds. The night began with the survivor lap. Throughout the night, there were fun activities for all ages, music by Jack Rabbit Slims, and Luminaria Ceremony, which was led by Mason Howard, bagpipe player.
