CORPUS CHRISTI - The 2013 Relay for Life of Downtown Corpus Christi gets underway tomorrow at Whataburger Field. There's still time to make your donation in the name of your favorite team benefiting the American Cancer Society.
If you are not doing anything on Friday, May 17, we invite you to come out and see what the Relay for Life is all about. The walk starts at 6 p.m. and lasts until 6 a.m.
Once again this year, KRIS Communications employees (KRIS and KZTV) are taking part in the Relay for Life under the name of TeamLADY alongside the family of Mary Lopez. Mary lost her battle with cancer in February 2011. Most everyone here at KRIS knew her as she worked with us for more than 20 years.
To make a donation to TeamLADY, or any team of your choice, visit the Relay for Life of Downtown Corpus Christi site here - http://bit.ly/184fKVG
You will be amazed at how many people occupy Whataburger Field this one night. There are so many wonderful people there to share their stories, whether they are cancer survivors or loved ones of those who lost their battle to cancer, their strength and courage will amaze you.
Please know that all funds donated to Relay for Life will support the American Cancer Society's mission in eliminating cancer through research, education, advocacy, and patient services.
