Relay For Life of Greater Fredericksburg
April 25 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pmFree
The opening ceremony welcomes all the Relay participants. There may even be live music and special guests to help get everyone pumped for a day of remembrance and celebration.
The survivors take the first lap, and then caregivers take their turn to get recognized for all they do to support their loved ones.
Most teams set up a tent for their home base, to have a place to recharge or just grab some shade.
Once the event is in full swing, teammates take turns walking the track to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer. Between laps, you can check out other teams’ tents for games and fundraising activities. There will be food trucks and a silent auction, too!
Luminaria can be purchased and at the end of the night they are placed around the track to remember those we’ve lost, and celebrate cancer survivors. For more information visit acsevents.org
