Description

Cancer has touched all of us in some way and we want to stop this disease in its tracks. Relay For Life is the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Join our team at the Farmington Relay for Life event to bring our community together to remember loved ones lost, honor survivors, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society make a global impact on cancer.


Register by Friday 6/23. Everyone on our team will receive a Thrivent team t-shirt. Raise $100 or more to also receive a HOPE t-shirt from American Cancer Society.


Event Schedule:

  • 6PM- Opening Ceremony: The evening will kickoff 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.
  • Survivors Lap- Immediately following Opening Ceremony: Survivors define courage and inspire those facing a cancer diagnosis. Their strength is honored with each step they take around the first lap. If you know anyone who's overcome cancer, invite them to join.
  • Caregivers Lap- Immediately following Survivor 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.
  • 9:30PM- 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.
  • 10:30PM- Closing Ceremony: Celebrate all that we've accomplished together and we commit to take action and help end the pain and suffering of cancer.

FAQs

What is Relay for Life?

Relay is a team fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track. The event is 6 hours and each team is asked to have a member on the track at all times to signify that cancer never sleeps. Each team sets up a themed campsite at the event and continues their fundraising efforts by collecting donations for food, goods, games and activities. This money will count towards their overall team fundraising goal.
