Relay For Life 2012

Published May 12th, 2012

Relay for life is a time to celebrate, remember, and fight. We celebrate the survivors of cancer and those battling their disease. We remember those who lost their lives to cancer. And we fight to eliminate cancer by raising awareness and funding to continue cancer research.

hope lights the way

A reminder that hope shines for cancer patients not only throughout the night of the relay, but for many days and nights to come. Cancer cannot defeat hope.

remember

Every glow stick is a reminder of a victim of cancer. Glow sticks were broken in unison by those who lost the same loved one, e.g. all those who lost their father lit their glow sticks at the same time, and all those who lost a friend lit their glow sticks in unison.

never alone

Each one of these Luminaria bags was made for a loved one who lost their life from cancer. Hundreds of Luminaria bags lit the track late at night as students walked in remembrance of those lost and helped fight for those battling cancer. The sheer number of Luminaria bags serves as a reminder that cancer patients are never alone in their battles.

she lives in our hearts

A Luminaria bag made by a friend of mine for a loved one who recently passed away. Cancer cannot break their bond of love.
