Additional Information

Light of Lea County is excited for its Second Annual Walk for Light scheduled for June 1, 2018 at Green Meadow Park. In the past, Hobbs has hosted the Relay For Life for the American Cancer Society, and our community supported this event, for many years, with very generous time and donations. Last year we changed it up! Light of Lea County has partnered with the American Cancer Society for the “Walk for Light." Proceeds raised at this event will allow 85 percent of money raised to stay in Lea County! The money raised is awarded to any Lea County resident diagnosed with cancer and currently undergoing treatment. This money is used for financial assistance including automobile gas, lodging, utilities, care of family at the home and food. Light of Lea County fully believes and supports cancer research and will continue to send 15 percent of all proceeds to the American Cancer Society to help fulfill the dream of finding a cure for cancer. Your Walk for Light Committee will provide several sponsorship opportunities. The goal is to have 25 teams. The registration fee is $20 per walker and that will include a 2018 “Walk for Light” t-shirt. Light of Lea County continues the tradition of selling Luminarias in honor and memory of your loved ones. These Luminarias play an important role in our event as they symbolize our loved ones and shine a bright light of HOPE. Luminarias will be available for $5. MAKING A DIFFERENCE is our 2018 theme and with your help we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer. Light of Lea County – Where there is light, there is hope. Making a difference in the lives of our neighbors through financial generosity and volunteer commitment.
