    Relay for Life of Lee County
    Friday, June 7, 2019
    from 6pm to 12am (midnight)
    at the Giddings Buffalo Stadium, 2337 N. Main
    Fiesta for a Cure!

    Opening Ceremony

    Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who's been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year's Relay season.

    Survivor/Caregiver Walk

    Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn't matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.

    Luminaria Ceremony

    During this ceremony we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It's a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.

     

    Closing Ceremony

    Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It's a time to celebrate what we've accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.
