6:00 p.m. The Survivors Lap
The traditional cancer survivor lap is everyone who has survived cancer. They will take the ceremonial first lap around the track. Once the survivors go half way around the track, family members and caretakers may join the survivors for the second half of the lap. Upon finishing the lap, you and your loved ones are invited to the survivor reception.
7:00 p.m. The Relay officially begins!
7:00 p.m.
Silent Auction begins.
7:30 p.m.
Cherae Ensor (a local Zumba instructor), and friends will be performing several Zumba dances on the mainstage. If you've gone to her classes, and want to participate, please come and join the fun!
8:30 p.m. The Luminaria Ceremony
Luminarias (bags with candles inside them) can celebrate the surviorship of people who have battled cancer, or also can commemorate the lives of those who have been lost to the disease. All represent a person who has profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who will continue to be touched by that experience. The lighting of the luminaries will happen at dusk.
