(MEDORA) - 7th Annual HOPE Medora Goes Pink Saturday.

The event will raise funds to purchase gas cards and groceries and provide help in other ways for those who are battling the deadly disease. So far the group has raised more than $40,000 to battle cancer.

Visit vendors, enjoy great treats, live entertainment and fun for the whole family while supporting cancer awareness, research and support.

"This year will are going to have a CROSS for a CAUSE Relay," says organizer Debra Wayman. "I hope many will participate. The cross represents the love that was shown to us and His suffering; we know that those with cancer and their families suffer and we want them to see when they look to the cross, decorated with white and pink lights, that Medora and others care and show their love and we hope they see our light."

Those wanting to participate need to meet at Medora covered bridge at 3 p.m.

The cross made by Wayman's father 30 years ago was used for a church play.

"It will be carried over head and passed to each group that is gathered at the street intersections," she added. When the cross reaches the stage, it will be lighted and remain lit for one month; to remind all those of the love that was shown to us and we in return want all those who view the cross to know that there are many who have supported the HOPE Medora Goes Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Event, and offered Love, Prayers and monetary support to the many people and families who are affected by all types of cancer, I hope there will be large crowd to gather at the stage at 4 p.m. to hear the band Scarlet 2 White."
