LARNED — Teams of the tri-county area residents will gather at the Larned High School track at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9 for an evening relay against cancer.
Relay For Life is a fun filled event that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer.
The event begins with a cancer survivor’s dinner at the Larned High School Cafeteria at 6 p.m. The opening ceremony will start at 7 p.m. followed by the survivor’s lap celebrating those who have survived cancer, or who are currently battling cancer.
The evening is filled with games, team contests, music, live entertainment, food, and a car show by the Santa Fe Trail Car Club; a fun filled Family evening for the entire community. Relay teams will hold creative fundraisers at their campsites during the evening.
Relay For Life’s Luminaria Ceremony takes place after sundown, honoring the community’s cancer survivors and remembering those lost to the disease. Relay participants and members of the community in attendance can walk the track that is surrounded with glowing luminaria bearing the name of loved ones, friends, neighbors and co-workers.
The community residences of Edwards, Stafford and Pawnee Counties are invited to the 2013 Relay For Life to support the area survivor’s during the survivor’s lap and take part in the moving Luminaria Ceremony after the sun goes down to help us Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back.
