Join us at the 2012 American Cancer Society Relay For Life on June 23rd at the Hamden High School Track!
The Hamden/North Haven Relay for Life runs from 9 a.m. Saturday to 9 a.m. Sunday. The opening ceremony is at 10 a.m. Saturday, and the survivor recognition lap starts at 10:30 a.m. A lap for caregivers follows at 10:45 a.m.
There is a reception for cancer survivors at 11:30 a.m. The luminaria ceremony is at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer.
Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Relays are an overnight event, 24 hours in length.
Relay For Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people per year to:
- Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.
- Remember loved ones lost to the disease. At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing.
- Fight Back. We Relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put an end to the disease.
