A signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society Coordinated by volunteers and staff in thousands of communities and nearly 30 countries. Teams raise funds leading up to the Relay event. At the event teams take turns walking around a track or path within a six to 24 hour period. Teams have walkers on the track or path that is lined by luminarias with personal messages to honor or remember loved ones. Each team keeps a member walking at all times. This symbolizes the battle waged around the clock by those facing cancer. As this takes place entertainment, music, activities & games, craft vendors, guest speakers, survivors & caregivers dinner surround the walkers.
