Annual Relay for Life set this weekend

The American Cancer Society’s 6th annual Relay For Life of Greenwich will be held at Brunswick School’s King Street Campus at on June 15 and 16 at 1252 King Street. The Relay For Life is an overnight event where teams from businesses, schools, and neighborhoods take turns walking around the track.

The event begins at 7 p.m. on June 15 with an opening ceremony and then the walking, which will go on until 7:30 a.m. the next morning, commences. Prior to the opening, a survivor reception is set for 6 p.m. The Parade of Nations will be at 8 p.m. and what is billed as a “very moving” Luminaria Ceremony, which honors cancer survivors and celebrates the memory of those lost to this dreaded disease will follow at 9 p.m. There will be plenty of activities throughout the evening for young and old alike including games, zumba, cupcake decorating, a DJ and a silent auction.

On Saturday morning, a “fight back” ceremony will be held at 7 a.m. and at 7:30 the Relay for Life will come to a close. According to the American Cancer Society, “Relay For Life celebrates cancer survivors, remembers those we have lost, and gives everyone the chance to fight back against cancer. Special activities, ceremonies, and entertainment make it a fun and moving experience. All teams raise money for the American Cancer Society to help people stay well, get well, find cures, and fight back.”
