ACS relay for Life on June 2 & 3

Powder Ridge is hosting an American Cancer Society Relay for Life event on Saturday, June 2 starting at noon and running all night until 9 a.m. Sunday.

On Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. we also have a Beer & Wine Tasting Event. Tickets are available online and this Sip & Support for a Cure event financially supports the Relay for Life event!

Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event. The event starts with an Opening Ceremony on Saturday at noon. 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.

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.

During the Luminaria 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.

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.
