Luminarias in remembrance of cancer survivors and those who have passed away line the paths at the Chaves County Courthouse Friday night as the 11th annual Walk for Hope got underway downtown. The event is the largest fundraising event for the nonprofit Chaves County Cancer Fund Inc., an all-volunteer organization. “Every penny we raise tonight is going straight to the Chaves County Cancer Fund,” Brittnye Lamb said, the co-chair of the walk. “We try to take care of things here on the home front so that they can take care of their medical expenses and just focus on getting better.” She explained that the funds go to cancer patients to help pay for their household expenses.
