Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event.
Every Relay has different components, but here are a few things they all have in common:
Campsite Set Up
Time: 11:00am - 5:30pm
Vehicles are allowed on the track to assist with campsite setup until 4:00pm. Teams wishing to sell food/drinks during set up are welcome to do so.
Jim Miller Park Map
Time: 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Catering will be provided by Mother's Finest Catering in the Exhibit Hall.
We'll kick off the event by celebrating everyone who's been affected by cancer. Whether someone's been diagnosed for 10 days or been cancer-free for 10 years, they gather together for the crowd to cheer them on. The Opening Ceremony will feature the Rivera Family.
Survivors define courage and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis. Their strength is honored with each step they take around the first lap. If you know anyone who's overcome cancer, invite them to join.
Caring for others is such a selfless act, which is why we honor caregivers with a lap. They often walk with the person they've supported.
Each Luminaria bag represents a loved one lost to cancer, brings support to those affected by it, and honors survivors. This powerful moment gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers hope and comfort.
We celebrate all that we've accomplished together and remember those we've lost. Together, we commit to take action and help end the pain and suffering of cancer.
