Relay for Life is an American Cancer Society fundraiser that helps the ACS provide research, education, advocacy and services to those with cancer. Teams raise money and participate by walking around a track or course for a period of twelve or twenty-four hours. Relay for Life events are overnight events and last for 12-24 hours to signify that cancer never sleeps. Each team’s goal is to have someone on the course at all times.
Relay for Life in Coronado is Saturday August 4 to Sunday August 5, 2012. The Opening Ceremony is at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning and culminates with the 10:30 a.m. “Survivor Lap”. There’s nothing quite like being on the side of the course and cheering for those in the purple shirts, knowing they have all fought this terrible disease. Read the entire post by Kellee Hearther.
Congrats to all of those that participated in this event. People walked for hours, did Zumba, played in the water, broke boards using karate, grilled food, camped out in tents, listened to live music and fought cancer. Here are a few photos and videos that were taken yesterday. Thanks to Darcy Leasure and Lisa Johnson for sharing these with us.
