Guidelines

 

to ensure everyone has a safe and fun time! 

  Relay For Life is a SMOKE FREE – ALCOHOL FREE event. 

  Teams need to have at least one member walking (jogging) on the track at all times.  It is the Teams responsibility to coordinate walking times-schedules. 

  If you have a cell phone- PLEASE be considerate and turn it off during the Opening and Luminaria Ceremonies! 

  Please dispose of all garbage and food in the proper manner.  We are ALL responsible for keeping the area clean- this is OUR event.  We do have recycling containers for bottles, cans and glass. 

  Sorry, No pets allowed.

  Small children attending the event are the responsibility of their parents.   Students in attendance are the responsibility of the sponsors or chaperones. 

  Relay For Life has an open tent policy-please make sure to follow this guideline.

  Relay For Life has a same sex tent policy for all student teams.

  If any problem arises please bring it to the immediate attention of one of the Committee.  They will be wearing GREEN Relay shirts.

   Please be courteous to fellow teams by keeping the restrooms clean.
