First: we need you to sign up at relayforlife.org. You can participate as an individual or gather friends and family to form a team.

Second: Raise funds. Many tools and tips are available on the website.

Third: Sell luminaria. Bags are sold for $10 each and are available online or from event teams. Bags Come join us Friday, Sept 24, as we commemorate all those battling cancer, mourn those the loss and support survivors by celebrating lives affected by cancer.
