The “Survivors” are Relay For Life’s guests of honour. They are the people who have overcome cancer, or who are still undergoing treatment. The event pays tribute to them and celebrates their courage. The Survivors run/walk the first lap of the Relay For Life, encouraged by their families, friends and all participating teams.
The “Caregivers” are all the people who have supported those affected by cancer, in their fight against the disease. The Caregivers join the Survivors for the second lap.
This “goose bump moment” marks the start of the Relay For Life. It is at the same time a celebration of the battle won against the disease, a gesture of hope sent to the people affected by cancer, and to their families, and a way of thanking all the people who have given them help and support.
Are you a Survivor too?
For Relay For Life, it is an honour to feature you in the Opening Ceremony. Take this opportunity to get support and to give support to others battling cancer.
