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:

 

Opening Ceremony

Opening Ceremony

 

Time:

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.

 

 

Survivors Lap

 

Time:

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.

 

 

Caregivers Lap

 

Time:

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.

 

 

Luminaria Ceremony

Luminaria Ceremony

 

Time:

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.

 

 

Closing Ceremony

Closing Ceremony

 

Time:

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.
