[ARCHIVED] Relay for Life South County

This event is an overnight community gathering that gives everyone an opportunity to fight cancer and help save lives. Citizens come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against this disease that has already taken too much. Relay teams camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track. It's overnight because cancer never sleeps. Each team is asked to have at least one participant on the track at all times. This event includes a Survivor Ceremony where we celebrate those in the community that have battled the disease or continue to fight, a Luminaria Ceremony which we light Luminaria bags around the track to remember loved ones lost and celebrate those who have fought, and a Fight Back Ceremony which celebrates our community and shares ways we can prevent the disease. There's entertainment, celebration and remembrance. Participants welcomed!
