Relay For Life 2011 The Time and Place: Saturday, June 11th through Sunday, June 12th Police Officers’ Club, 34 Hope Road, Kingston 10 Site set up and tent decorating at 10:00am to 3:00pm. The Purpose: Relay For Life is a unique, fun way to raise money for the Jamaica Cancer Society while increasing cancer awareness and celebrating survivorship. The Event: Relay For Life involves teams of 10 persons taking turns walking or running around a track, relay style, for the duration of the event. It is a non-competitive, team-building event. Participants come from businesses, industry, churches, schools, service clubs and other organizations. Teams are formed to rally in support of a co-worker or loved one who is fighting or has lost the battle with cancer. The Fundraising: Each team member pays a registration fee of $800 and is asked to raise $5,000 in donations to support the Jamaica Cancer Society programs of education, screening and early detection, counseling, mobile screening and outreach. Participants receive information on how to raise money. Corporate Sponsors are secured to help underwrite the costs and encourage community involvement.
The Fun: Teams camp around the track and participate in a variety of activities while waiting their turn to relay. From karaoke and socaerobics, to lots of fun during the Purple Party, we have something for all. The Healing: Relay For Life is a Celebration of Cancer Survivorship. For the cancer survivor it provides an opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones and share experiences. The first lap of the Relay, on Saturday at 6:00pm is led by cancer survivors. Later, at 10:00pm the Luminaria Ceremony is held to remember those who have lost the battle.
