Relay For Life participants and donors remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating luminaria.

Luminaria, paper bags containing votive candles, are transformed and illuminated after dark at every local Relay For Life event. Each luminaria is personalized with a name, photo, message or drawing in memory or honor of a friend or loved one who has been affected by cancer. Luminaria can also be dedicated in support of a Relay participant. Each luminaria candle represents a person. They are our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, friends, coworkers, and so many others.

Remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating a luminaria bag.

Luminaria Ceremony

The Luminaria Ceremony occurs at every local Relay For Life event. As the sun sets, luminaria lining the track light up the night. A hush falls over a crowd that had been overflowing with celebration. Relay For Life participants, survivors, and caregivers then gather to remember loved ones lost to cancer and to honor those whose fight continues.

All events offer a classic, white paper bag. Other luminaria dedication options may include a gold bag and a tribute torch. Once you begin the luminaria donation process you will see the options available for purchase from your event.
