Relay For Life of Warwick, RI

100 days left until Relay![*]
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and fight back.

Celebrate - The Survivors Lap
Relay starts with a Survivors Lap an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are creating a world with more birthdays like those of each individual on the track.

Remember - The Luminaria Ceremony
After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence.

Fight Back - The Fight Back Ceremony
Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer.

No matter where you are, there’s a place for you at Relay and you can make a difference today by signing up online to start your own team or by simply making a donation.

Thanks to Relay participants, we are creating a world with more birthdays a world where cancer can’t claim another year of anyone’s life.

Now If I create a team will people participate???
If we get 24 people to participate each team member only “has” to walk for an hour the more members the less time each person “has” to walk

Yes, No, Maybe??
i would like to get this in the works if any one does.

bad timing for us. i would definitely be interested in taking part in some way, but we have tentative plans for that weekend. Im guessing that you need to start planning now though… can you give me a couple days to see what happens?

I think cancer is something that we are all touched by in one way or another and this is a great cause to be a part of. Thanks for trying to get us together on it. I will keep you posted.

there is also one in coventry the week end of the 11th
but thats the same weekend of our run @ Torry, Tunnel & Florida

I am going to start the team, & set up some fund raisers for it.
Amanda & I had fun doing this with ftr & met life in the past, I hope you can help me make this a success & a blast
