American Cancer Society’s 2013 Relay For Life Antioch to be held at Deer Valley High

Relay for Life Celebrate Remember Fight BackWHAT: Relay For Life is an exciting annual fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. Teams of 5-15 members formed from companies, schools, clubs, and friends and families, walk, run or roll (wheel chairs) in relay fashion for 24 hours around the track. The event is filled with live music, activities, contests, education and much more!

WHY: Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people every year from all over the world to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and empower individuals and communities to fight back against a disease that takes too much from too many.

CEREMONIES: Celebrate: Relay For Life opens as we Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue the fight as we kickoff our Relay with the Survivors’ Lap. Cancer survivors from all over the community are encouraged to join us in a celebration of their victories.

Remember: Remembering loved ones lost to the disease, and honoring survivors are the key reasons for the Luminaria Ceremony, which is held after dark. Luminarias line the track and continue to glow as we walk throughout the night. At Relay, people who have walked alongside those battling cancer can grieve and find healing.

Fight Back: Fight Back symbolizes the emotional commitment we each make to saving lives and fighting back against cancer year-round. The action we take represents what we are willing to do for ourselves, for our loved ones and/or for our community to fight cancer year round and to commit to saving a life.
