Relay for Life brings the community together

(Relay for Life)

Guam – Cancer does not discriminate. It can afflict anyone-young, old, male or female. In fact, you may know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.

So get your tennis shoes out and lace them up because tonight is Relay for Life, American Cancer Society’s annual signature event. The event brings together survivors and supporters all on one track in support of those battling cancer and remembering those who have passed on.

The event kicks off at 6 pm with the opening ceremony, followed by a Survivor and Caregiver dinner reception. The Survivor Caregiver Walk will begin at 7:15 pm followed by the parade of teams at 7:45 pm.

The luminaria ceremony will be at 10:30 pm. Luminarias are dedicated to a loved one lost, someone battling cancer, or anyone who has overcome cancer.

This event will continue throughout the night with activities and performances. It will conclude at 12:01 am.
