2019 American Cancer Society Relay for Life of Tacoma
May 17 @ 6:00 pm - May 18 @ 6:00 pmFree
Help the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Tacoma Attack Cancer in Our Community on May 17-18!
Join us as we celebrate 35 years of Relay For Life in Tacoma and our incredible impact in the fight against cancer.
Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 24-hour fundraising event that brings together a community of volunteers with a common goal — to CURE cancer. We invite you to join us as we join together to CELEBRATE cancer Survivors, REMEMBER those lost to cancer, FIGHT BACK against a disease that has taken too much from too many, and raise the funds that WILL finish the fight against cancer.
Relay For Life has a festival-like atmosphere that students, families, co-workers, and friends can enjoy regardless of age or fitness level! At Relay, teams gather and take turns walking laps throughout the 24 hours, while all around them the party is in full swing. Teams stay overnight in the decorated tent city and enjoy music, activities, and entertainment.
6:00PM: Opening Ceremonies
Cancer Survivors are our guests of honor at Relay For Life. Come cheer them on as they lead off our event with their victory lap. Survivor Caregiver Dinner will follow the Survivor Lap. Cancer Survivors can pre-register at www.tacomarelay.org
10:00PM: Luminaria Ceremony of HOPE
Help us honor and remember those touched by cancer during our Luminara Ceremony and Lap. We will have a special guest speaker, followed by a silent lap lit by Luminaria bearing the names of those touched by cancer.
Together, we can beat our biggest rival. Join or donate to the Relay For Life of Tacoma www.tacomarelay.org
