Relay For Life of Greater Milford

 ,   Add to calendar
 Milford  See map

Please join us for this 18 hour community, family event to celebrate survivors of cancer, remember those we have lost, and raise much needed monies to find a cure for cancer.

The Theme is Relay… taking turns walking around a track through out the night… keeping in mind that cancer never sleeps.

The Relay For Life begins with a Survivors Walk and then everyone takes turns walking laps all through the night.

We have different theme laps where if the mood strikes you…  you can wear… Super Hero, Go Hawaiian, Your Favorite Sport, Madri Gras, Pirates, Cowboy, Princess.

After dusk we have a special Torch and Luminaria Ceremony where thousands of Luminaria which line both sides of the track are lit and glow throughout most of the night.  It truly is a beautiful sight!

Everyone is welcome.

It is not too late to join or start a team, make a donation, be honored as a survivor.
