The Superior High School Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) are once again planning their annual Cancer Fight by Candlelight event, scheduled for Mar. 16, 2013. The theme this year is “Conquered, Courage, Cherished.”

Organizers chose this theme to celebrate those who have conquered cancer, remember those who have died of cancer and provide courage to those who are currently fighting cancer. There are several ways you can celebrate, remember and fight back and help these Superior teens raise money for the American Cancer Society.

By registering to walk in the walk or making a donation to dedicate a luminaria, you can participate in this event. Registration fee for the walk is $10 and includes a t-Shirt, but those registering the day of the walk will not receive a t-Shirt.

Walkers will need to meet at the top of Sunset by 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event, as the walk starts at 6 p.m.

If you are unable to participate in the walk you can make any financial donation to dedicate a luminaria. Luminarias can be dedicated to remember those who have passed from cancer or honor those fighting or surviving cancer. The luminarias will be lined up and lit on Sunset Drive for the walk.

Pre-registration for the walk and luminaria donations can be made by contacting the FCCLA sponsors Terry Villaverde or Valerie Garcia at 520-689-3100.

Following the walk there will be concessions, music and entertainment available at the Superior High School Football Field.
