The 2013 Mill Creek Relay for Life is this weekend, June 1st – 2nd, at McCollum Park beginning at noon on Saturday and going until 9 am Sunday morning.
The event will start with the Survivor Opening Ceremony and then all Survivors will kick off the relay and Celebrate with the first lap.
There will be fundraiser events for all ages throughout the day including food, drawings, products for purchase, games, photo booth, and others.
At 10 pm the Luminaira ceremony will be a moment to Remember with a tribute to all who have fought, are fighting and have lost the fight to cancer when the entire track is lit up with decorated Luminaria bags.
There will be opportunities to donate/decorate Luminaria bags for friends, family and loved ones who have battled cancer at the event on Saturday, in time for the ceremony.
The Relay will continue to Fight Back throughout the night, as Cancer doesn’t sleep. Teams will be walking to music and entertainment, participating in some crazy themed laps, and enjoying s’mores and making new friendships and lasting memories.
This year’s lap themes are, in no particular order, Super Hero, Bring your Pet, Fun and Games, South of the Border, Road to Recovery, Favorite Sport Team, Crazy Hat/Hair, Pirates, Western, PJ’s, 50’s / 70’s / 80’s, Light up the Night, Backwards, and Team Parade & Lip Sync. Additional lap themes may be added. Schedule will be available at the event.
Please join us as we Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back!
