Manhattan Relay For Life 2014 Kick Off
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
When & Where
American Cancer Society's Manhattan Relay For Life Committee
Relay For Life -the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society (ACS) - is a 12-hour, overnight walking event. Participants form teams and walk around one, unified track together to celebrate survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against all types of cancer. The track is lined with Luminaria, which are candle-lit bags with the names of those who have been affected by the disease - the Luminaria remind us who we are fighting for, and we have a beautiful ceremony during the night to honor them. There are ongoing performances, activities, and raffles throughout the night, as well as a silent auction with great prizes.
*All proceeds go towards the ACS's Mission to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
