Relay For Life is a huge, 24-hour fundraiser to celebrate those who have beat cancer, remember the lives lost and fight back against a disease that takes too much. Gather your friends, sing-a-long with our DJ, dance, play games, win prizes, and raise money with onsite fundraisers—and bring us all one step closer to a cure!
(Activities and a detailed schedule will be announced before Relay.)
Opening Ceremony/Survivor's Lap: 9:00am - Saturday The Opening Ceremony brings everyone together for a high-energy event kickoff to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, to inspire hope by sharing recent accomplishments and progress, and to remind everyone that while we are winning this battle, fighting cancer is a year-round priority.
During the Survivors Lap, upbeat music plays as all cancer survivors at the event take the first lap around the track cheered on by the other participants who line the track, celebrating their victory over cancer.
Luminaria Ceremony: 9:00pm
The Luminaria Ceremony is a time to remember people we have lost to cancer, to support people who currently have cancer, and to honor people who have fought cancer in the past. The power of this ceremony lies in providing an opportunity for people to work through grief and find hope.
Closing Ceremony/Fight Back: 8:00am - Sunday The Closing Ceremony is a time to remember the lives of those lost and to celebrate that each of us has committed, through our participation in a Relay event, to fight back against this disease over the next year.
Fight Back symbolizes the emotional commitment we each make to the fight against cancer. The action we take represents what we are willing to do for ourselves, for our loved ones, and for our community to fight cancer year-round and to commit to saving lives.
