At 9 p.m., the luminary ceremony will take place. White bags will be lined up around the track with names written on them representing those who are surviving cancer (in honor) or those who have lost the battle with cancer (in memory). The candles are the lit.
Luminaries can be bought for at least $5. Luminaries can be purchased up until 7 p.m. the night of Relay for Life. Luminaries can be purchased online at www.relayforlife.org/andersoncotx, from a Relay for Life team member, or from Relay for Life Chair Sarah McDonald (903-724-4178 or via email at email@example.com).
Beginning at 7 p.m. and throughout the night, a variety of activities and games will take place during Relay for Life. A bounce house will be set up for the children. Some things to look forward to is the Mrs. Relay competition (men on the teams dress up as a woman and then collect donations) and the midnight chocolate buffet.
Each team will have a “campsite” on the field with various fund-raisers taking place ranging from food, novelty and homemade items, and drawings. There also will be a silent auction.
We encourage everyone to come out to Relay for Life and bring the whole family. The event is largely a celebration of life -- and there are plenty of things to do. And the money you spend at the event will go toward a greater cause -- fighting cancer.
