Relay For Life of Sedgwick County
Noon-10pm , June 27, 2020 | Goddard High Schoool
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement is the world's largest fundraising event to save lives from cancer. This festival-like event celebrates people who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and takes action for lifesaving change.
Opening Ceremony at Noon
Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season. This year's event will be completely indoors and will run 10 hours (noon to 10pm) on a Saturday!
Survivor/Caregiver Walk at 12:15pm
Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn't matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.
Luminaria Ceremony at 8pm
During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It's a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.
Closing Ceremony at 9:30pm
Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It's a time to celebrate what we've accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.
FREE but fundraising is encouraged
