June 10th & 10th
Cancer survivors are very special people at Relay For Life.
We invite all cancer survivors to join us for a special
celebration to kick-off the event. Cheshire begins the Relay For
Life at 3:00pm on Friday evening. The official Opening
Ceremony commences around 6:00pm. Following the ceremony,
survivors celebrate their survivorship by joining together with
the Survivor's Celebration Lap. After this lap, caregivers are
encouraged to take a special lap with our courageous survivors.
After the Celebration Laps a special survivors' reception is held under
the Survivors' Tent on Friday evening. We invite you and your family to
join us for a variety of refreshments and conversation.
Survivors are also honored during the luminaria ceremony. The
luminaria ceremony will commence at dusk and will include the
lighting of the luminaria bags that will encircle the track to
light the way for the
walkers. Each luminaria named in honor of a survivor or one who
has been lost to cancer.
For the newly diagnosed, Relay For Life offers an opportunity to
meet someone who has survived the same type of cancer. For the
cancer patient in treatment, Relay For Life offers the opportunity
to share with others. For the long-term survivor, Relay For Life
brings recognition that the community cares about their struggle
and closure to a trying time in life. Your strength and courage
help the community see that cancer survivorship is real and that
we are making progress towards a cure.
Another group finding hope in Relay For Life are the caregivers.
These individuals give their time, love and support to friends,
family and neighbors who face cancer. At Relay For Life, everyone
understands the challenges and joys of being a caregiver.
