The Survivor’s walk begins around 7:30 pm after Opening Ceremonies. Caregivers and survivors are invited to the survivors walk. Janet Tallen is the honorary survivor this year. The theme this year is ‘Classic Cartoons.’

20150619_202156The weather for this year’s Relay For Life is proving to be beautiful. With temperatures expected in the high 20’s (Celcius), hydrating will be the name of the game tonight.

Luminaries can be purchased for $5.00 for someone you may wish to remember for The Luminary Ceremony which takes place at dusk each year. The luminary ceremony is an especially beautiful vision to behold, and moving opportunity to reflect on lives touched by cancer.
