Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event.
Every Relay has different components, but here are a few things they all have in common:
Survivor and Caregiver Celebration Reception
Friday, June 2nd, South River High School Cafeteria
Check in - 4:00 p.m.
Dinner and Program - 4:30 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.
Victory Lap at Opening Ceremony - 6:00 p.m.
If you are newly diagnosed or a cancer survivor for a period of time, please join us at our Survivor and Caregiver Celebration Reception as our honored guest. Each Survivor is permitted to bring one guest/caregiver to the celebration free if charge. Event registration is required, and can be done by clicking on 'join this event' on our main page. Please RSVP for the Reception by sending an email to SouthAARelay@gmail.com or by calling 512.490.8764 and please include your name, your t-shirt size, your phone number, and your guest's name in the message. All registered Survivors will receive a complimentary t-shirt, delicious dinner, and a chance to win great door prizes!
Time: 6:00 p.m.
We'll kick off the event by celebrating everyone who's been affected by cancer. Whether someone's been diagnosed for 10 days or been cancer-free for 10 years, they gather together for the crowd to cheer them on.
Time: 6:15 p.m.
Survivors define courage and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis. Their strength is honored with each step they take around the first lap. If you know anyone who's overcome cancer, invite them to join.
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Caring for others is such a selfless act, which is why we honor caregivers with a lap. They often walk with the person they've supported.
Time: 9:30 p.m.
Each Luminaria bag represents a loved one lost to cancer, brings support to those affected by it, and honors survivors. This powerful moment gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers hope and comfort.
Time: Saturday, June 3rd, 5:30 a.m.
We celebrate all that we've accomplished together and remember those we've lost. Together, we commit to take action and help end the pain and suffering of cancer.
