Event volunteers and participants will gather in Room A of Loutit District Library in Grand Haven for a kickoff rally to launch their fundraising efforts for the year.
Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event — dedicated to increasing awareness and raising funds to fight cancer. Teams of family, friends and co-workers camp out overnight and take turns walking the track. During the event, participants and visitors will have a chance to celebrate the victory of area cancer survivors during the Survivors Lap; remember those we have lost to the disease during the poignant Luminaria Ceremony; and participate in the Fight Back
Ceremony that gives everyone a chance to proclaim their way of taking action against the disease.
Donations can be made to the local Relay for Life event by visiting www.relayforlife.org. Community members can also start or join a team by following the links.
The 2012 Relay for Life of Grand Haven/Spring Lake will take place at White Pines Middle School on May 12, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing for 24 hours.
