relay for life bocaBOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The annual Relay For Life season is upon us at the American Cancer Society events have been set throughout the region:

Thousands of participants across dozens of communities will come together throughout April and May to honor cancer survivors, their caregivers, and to pay tribute to those for whom the cure did not come soon enough. The American Cancer Society Relay For Life events will be taking place over the next several weeks at different times and locations throughout the region.

East and West Boca Raton, June 6th, St. Jude Catholic Church, 21689 Toledo Road. Starts at 6p.

Downtown Delray: June 7th, Old School Square Park, 51 North Swinton Avenue. Starts at 4p.

 

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is an overnight celebration where people take turns walking, running or otherwise circling around a track “relay” style to raise funds to fight cancer. You don’t need to be a track star to be a winner in this race for life. The idea is to enjoy your time, dance, play games, and enjoy the presence of others all while raising money to finish the fight, and provide services to cancer patients and their families. One of the many highlights of the event is the luminaria ceremony, or candlelight vigil, held at nightfall to honor cancer survivors, caregivers, and to remember those lost to cancer.

Relay For Life reminds us that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten and that those who face cancer will always be supported. More than anything it makes us hopeful that one day, cancer will be eliminated for good. This event is therapy for the mind, spirit, and the heart. Since 1985, Relay For Life has spread to more than 6,100 communities in the U.S. and has become a worldwide movement, taking place in more than 20 countries.
