Relay for Life of Hilo ~ July 15, 2017   Leave a comment

Relay for Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Relay is staffed and coordinated by volunteers in more than 5,200 communities and 27 countries. Volunteers give their time and effort because they believe it’s time to take action against cancer.

Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each event is 6-24 hours in length and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Cancer patients don’t stop because they’re tired, and for one night, neither do we.
Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games, and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.


OPENING CEREMONY Time: 4:00 pm 

We’ll kick off the event by celebrating everyone who’s been affected by cancer. Whether someone’s been diagnosed for 10 days or been cancer-free for 10 years, they gather together for the crowd to cheer them on.

SURVIVORS LAP Time: 4:00 pm 

Survivors define courage and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis. Their strength is honored with each step they take around the first lap. If you know anyone who’s overcome cancer, invite them to join.

CAREGIVERS LAP Time: 7:00 pm

Caring for others is such a selfless act, which is why we honor caregivers with a lap. They often walk with the person they’ve supported.

LUMINARIA CEREMONY Time: 9:00 pm 

Each Luminaria bag represents a loved one lost to cancer, brings support to those affected by it, and honors survivors. This powerful moment gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers hope and comfort.
CLOSING CEREMONY Time: 11:45 pm 

We celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together and remember those we’ve lost. Together, we commit to take action and help end the pain and suffering of cancer.

Saturday July 15, 2017  🔹   4pm-Midnight

Address: Francis Wong Stadium, 799 Piilani Street Hilo, HI

Cost/Cover: Free
