Teams walk and dress up for themed laps. We play all day until nighttime approaches and a feeling of reverence comes over Relay as we hold our Luminary Ceremony and remember our lost loved ones. A bag pipe plays, the track is surrounded by luminary bags decorated in honor of someone we hold dear. Their names glow with candlelight, the crowd is hushed as we make our way around the track in silence. You can feel the love and heartache. You can also feel and see compassion and support for those that are in the here and now. It is an amazing unforgettable experience. JOIN US WON’T You? Somewhere out there, there is a CURE for CANCER and It’s waiting to be found. “We’ve gotta’ DO SOMETHING!” Let’s RELAY!
