Egg & Spoon Lap, Freeze-Dance Lap, Skipping Lap, Partner Lap, Cupid Shuffle Lap, Speed Walk Lap, and Backwards Lap.
There are three central themes to every Relay for Life Event – Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back. The celebration portion includes a dinner for cancer Survivors and their CareGivers. The remembrance portion includes a moving Luminaria Ceremony in which friends and loved ones lost to cancer are remembered. The event is a way of fighting against cancer by raising funds for Research. The American Cancer Society funds research for all types of cancer. 93% of all money raised goes to continuing research efforts.
