What you need to bring to Relay
Why We Walk
In May 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, to help American Cancer Society fight the nation’s biggest health concern cancer raising $27,000. A year later, 340 supporters joined the overnight event. Now 30 years strong, Relay For Life has over four million volunteers and has raised over 5 billion dollars in the fight against cancer. Because of you, our volunteers, we will see an end to this disease so that the next generation does not have to hear the word “cancer”.
At Relay For Life events, communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds you raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!
Because cancer never sleeps, we ask that each team has a member of their team walking the track at all times.
We will be holding an auction near the DJ. We ask all team to please donate something to be donated. We just ask that you please bring a list of what may be in the “basket” or information about the item and an estimate of the cost. People will be able to make donations towards the item at the auction.
ROAD TO RECOVERY
Every day thousands of cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for people with cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
The Road to Recovery Car Show and Race is set up at the relay event to bring awareness to the Road to Recovery program and to help get the word out to the community for volunteers.
The rules for the car show and race are as follows:
A. Your "vehicle" can be constructed of just about anything you can think of
B. The maximum width of your "vehicle" is four feet (no length restrictions).
C. Each car MUST be able to one person and an egg – a "driver" and a “passenger".
D. Your vehicle may NOT be motorized or have any "mechanical" parts (no cycles of any type). The maximum power allowed is human power!
E. Decorate your vehicle! Feel free to get creative as you would like with this. Example: You can incorporate something educational about cancer on your car or you can decorate based on your campsite theme.
F. The public will be the judges voting on the cars' appearances. Buckets will be placed next to each car and the car that receives the most donations, in dollar amount, will be the winner of the car show.
The Car Race
* If at any time the egg falls out of the car, the team is disqualified.
Mr. Relay is an event to bring awareness to the changes a person goes through with treatment and the volunteers that help patients learn new ways to care for their skin or do their makeup.
To bring to light the change a patient may go through and these acts of kindness, we have the Mr. Relay lap. Each team will be asked to “remodel” a male member of their team to resemble a woman. That person will then walk the track to collect additional donations for their team.
We ask that it is kept family friendly and fun, but other than that anything goes!!
