Relay For Life Medina County will be a 6-hour event this year, on this Saturday, May 6, 2017 in Devine at Warhorse Stadium from 5:00 P.M. to 12 Midnight. Everyone is invited to attend this free event and join in on the fun.
Opening Ceremony will start at 5:00 P.M kicking 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.
Survivors Lap will start at 5:30 P.M. Survivor’s 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.
Caregivers Lap will follow the survivors at 5:35 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.
Luminaria Ceremony time is 8:00 P.M. Each luminaria bag represents 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.
Closing Ceremony time is 11:30 P.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.
