Relay for Life – Bristol

June 9, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - June 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am

Event Navigation

Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event. Every Relay has different components, but they all have a few things in common.

6:00 p.m. – The event will kick-off 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.

6:15 p.m. – Survivors Lap:  Survivors define courage and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis. Their strength is honored with each step they take around the first lap.

6:30 p.m. – Caregivers Lap:  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.

9:00 p.m. – Luminaria Ceremony:  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.

June 10, 8:00 a.m. – Closing Ceremony:  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.
