Festival of Hope set for June 15

On Friday, June 15, the American Cancer Society Festival of Hope for Anderson County will kick off the 2018 event at Melton Lake Park in Oak Ridge at 6 p.m.

Area cancer survivors and their families or caregivers are invited to come as early as 5 p.m. to check in at the Survivor’s Tent which will be located near the picnic pavilion.

The Survivor Ceremony allows the public the opportunity to cheer on our area cancer survivors as they are recognized and then walk in the special Survivors Lap, a moving experience honoring those who have defeated cancer and encouraging those who are currently battling cancer.

Survivors will join together to walk the lap, unified in victory and hope.
