Coming up on Friday, June 23rd, the Mesa County Relay For Life returns, to help raise needed funds for cancer research. For those of you who aren’t sure what it is, the Relay is a team based event that is held in over 5,200 communities and 27 countries.

The goal of the event is to not only raise funds, but to also increase awareness of what is going on in regards to cancer research, and to honor those who have claimed victory over the dread disease and to honor as well those who have lost the fight.

I have lost two sisters to cancer, so I have a special place in my heart for this event, and for any event that raises funds to help cure cancer. I, as do others, hope one day there will be a cure, but until that day, all we can do to fight it, we should do.

Past relays were all night events that involved camping out, walking in teams and enjoying the camaraderie this event always brings. But this year, the event is from 7PM-12AM and will have several parts to it.

The opening ceremonies celebrate those who are battling cancer. Recognizing those in the fight and allowing those assembled to cheer them on gets everyone going, motivated and excited. The survivor’s lap is always a special time.

There will also be a time to recognize those who have succumbed to cancer during the luminaria segment at 10P.M.. each luminaria bag represents a life that has been lost to cancer and allows those of us who have lost someone to honor their memory. And at 11:30, the closing ceremonies will bring the event to a rousing conclusion. During all of these events, teams will continue to walk, each step raising funds.
