The organizers of Relay for Life are holding a kick-off event on Tuesday, November 19th at the Great American Pub. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
During the event Conshohocken community members will unite to officially launch the fourth Relay For Life season. This year’s theme is Decades of Hope: A Walk Through Time. Money raised will fight cancer by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. Kick-off activities will include:
- Inspirational Survivor Speaker
- Sponsor and Past Team Fundraising Recognition
- Luminaria to Honor Survivors and Remember Those Lost to Cancer
- 2014 Event and Team Goals
- Door prizes
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Conshohocken is a 12-hour community celebration where individuals and teams set-up campsites, picnic, dance, play games and take turns walking around a track “relay” style to raise funds and fight cancer. The event opens as cancer survivors lead the way around the track and are honored with the Survivor Lap. As the sun begins to set, the warm glow of hundreds of Luminaria light the field in an emotional silent ceremony. Each bag lit is in honor of a loved one who won the fight against cancer or in remembrance of a special someone who lost their battle. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents hope in that those lost to cancer will not be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day, cancer will be eliminated.
