To Coppell residents, relay for life has always been an event that means much more then tents being pitched and games being played. It is a time to come together and remember the lives of those we have lost from breast cancer and celebrate a cure with every lap we achieve.

In Coppell alone, 971 participants have signed up, 47 teams have been formed and $53,177 has been raised. This event gives hope to those who are currently diagnosed with breast cancer and a chance for those who have lost love ones to cherish their memory with the city of Coppell.

The event will be held at Wagon Wheel Park on Saturday, April 28. It’s time to help in the fight against breast cancer.
