Relay for Life is the community coming together to bring awareness to cancer and to celebrate cancer survivors as well as raise money for cancer research. Different churches, businesses, and organizations all have decorated tents stating how they feel about cancer. Each team has someone walking around the track for 24 hours. It is a great time to see people and learn about cancer in a festival-type atmosphere. Friday evening they have a beautiful and very meaningful ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as those who lost the battle to cancer in the last year, followed by fireworks. They also serve a free steak dinner to cancer survivors after the opening lap on Friday at 6:00 p.m.
Thanks to your generosity, our team raised $15,000 in 2014!!!!! We are so grateful for your support. We are always looking for new members. Please consider joining our team!
