Relay For Life—A Step Towards Curing Cancer

O

ne of the most exciting end-ofthe-year projects in which our Key Club participates is Relay for Life. Relay for Life is a heartfelt event that celebrates the memory and lives of those who have battled or are battling cancer. Every year, this all-night event is held around June at a local school's track field. Members of Key Club as well as anyone who wants to participate in this event can make a team and together, they can walk or run around the track in support of those who have been touched by cancer. I have attended Relay for Life for the past two years and it has always been a very touching event for me. My favorite part of the event is the Luminaria Ceremony that takes place after dark. In the ceremony, candles are lit inside paper bags marked with someone's name and they are placed all around the track. Then, all the

lights BY KIM PENG Treasurer are turned off and everyone walks a lap of silence in remembrance of their loved ones. Throughout the rest of the evening, there are games, raffles, and other fun and perhaps unusual activities such as the beauty pageant for guys! Relay for Life is a chance for everyone to join hands to fight cancer and find healing. Words simply cannot describe the profound effects that this event has had on me. I too have people close to me who have battled/are battling cancer and I dearly hope for the best for

them. I encourage all Key Clubbers to attend Relay for Life because it will be a night that you will keep in your hearts for the rest of your life. 

FAQ: What Should I Bring to Relay for Life? Food, Drinks, Money

It is important to keep your body hydrated and energized throughout the night.

Tent, pillow, and a sleeping bag Because the relay is an overnight event, you would want somewhere to rest other than the grass, so bring a tent, a pillow, and a sleeping bag.

Source of Entertainment Not something like bringing your x-box, but bring something like a football or a volleyball

Beach Chairs In addition to the tent, beach chairs will give you another place to relax your tired feet.

Jacket or Hoodie Though Relay for Life is near the end of June, the day will certainly be hot, but during the night, it will get a little chilly. Especially being right next to the shore, bring a jacket or a hoodie to keep yourself warm.

Comfortable Clothing and Footwear Bring a change of clothes just in case, and remember, you’ll be here all day and night, so make sure they’re comfortable to be in. Also, wear shoes that you will feel comfortable in walking around the track.
