Relay For Life This Weekend
The 2016 Relay For Life of Lapeer County will be held at the Eastern Michigan Fairgrounds in Imlay City on June11 starting at 10 a.m. and ending June 12 at 8 a.m. Everyone is invited to join the fight against cancer.
Opening Ceremony: June 11 - 10 am
The Opening Ceremony brings everyone together for a high-energy event kickoff that celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer and reminds us all that while we are winning this battle, fighting cancer is a year-round priority.
Survivors Lap: June 11 - 6 pm
Cancer survivors take the first lap around the track. Cheered on by the other participants and the sound of upbeat music, the Survivors Lap lets all cancer survivors at the event celebrate their victory over cancer.
Caregivers Lap: June 11 - 6:30 pm
During the Caregivers Lap, anyone who ever cared for someone with cancer walks a special lap so they can be honored. Caregivers can walk this lap with the person they helped if they are also present.
Luminaria Ceremony: June 11 - 9:45pm
At the candlelight Luminaria Ceremony we remember loved ones lost to cancer, support people who currently have cancer, and honor people who fought cancer in the past. It's a powerful part of the event because it provides an opportunity for people to work through grief and find hope.
Closing Ceremony: June 12 - 8 am
The Closing Ceremony celebrates what we all just accomplished together. It's also a time to remember the lives of those lost, and to commit to continuing the fight against this disease over the next year.
