From Millie Drum, the Relay for Life Coordinator:
The community is invited to take part in the event as registered walkers or just to observe the experience, the signature event for the American Cancer Society. It begins at 9AM on Saturday morning; ending at 9AM the next day. The ceremonies are very inspiring - Opening at 9AM with speakers, the Survivor Lap, the Caregiver Lap, and Team lap before hundreds of walkers stay on the track "relay style" for 24 hours.
The Wellness Kitchen will be well represented at Relay For Life. At 8:00, the survivor's breakfast will feature healthy, wholesome food thanks to Nancy!
At dusk, the Luminaria ceremony makes us pause, remember and celebrate everyone that has been touched by cancer. The track will be illuminated with hundreds of candle lit bags; each with a name.
Closing ceremonies features our own Stephanie Austin; leaving the participants with the inspiration to begin...or continue a healthy lifestyle while cancer and other diseases are so prevalent in our lives.
If you do come to walk, we ask for everyone to register with a $10 donation.
Otherwise, join us. It is an unforgettable experience.
