 FIRESTONE — The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Carbon Valley will host its annual overnight Relay event at Hart Park. 

An important part of the relay will be the opening ceremonies. As part of the opening ceremonies, cancer survivors are invited to walk the first lap around the track with the important people in their lives and stay for refreshments following the first lap of this non-competitive walk/run

The opening ceremony will take place at 5 p.m. with the first lap at approximately 5:30p.m. Please plan to arrive early to pick up your Relay T-shirt and a special gift.

Special recognition will be given to all cancer survivors who take part in this unique beginning to a fun and exciting fund-raising event. Come and bring your friends and family. They will want to share this celebration of life with you! 

Online registration available at www.cvrelayforlife.org

There will also be a Survivor Dinner the night before the race, Friday, July 11.

This will be a celebration to honor each cancer survivor’s life and to give thanks to the wonderful caregivers that stood by them. Survivor photos will be taken and Survivor T-shirts will be available for early pickup so that they may be worn to Relay the next day.
