    Event Description:
    Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event. Survivor Dinners We offer 2 survivor dinner options to make it convenient on our survivors! The two seating times are 4:30 and 6:45. Survivors come to which ever meal is better for their schedule. No RSVP is necessary! Opening Ceremony Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season. Our Opening Ceremony begins at 6:00! Survivor/Caregiver Walk Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn't matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on. Our Survivor and Caregiver walk will take place directly after the opening ceremonies, approximately around 6:15. Luminaria Ceremony During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It's a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope. The luminary ceremony will begin at 10:00! Closing Ceremony Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It's a time to celebrate what we've accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward. We will close out our evening at Midnight as we have our closing ceremonies!
