CORAL SPRINGS RELAY EVENTS According to Kim Slapikas, Event Chair for Relay For Life Coral Springs, teams have been very busy with fundraising events throughout February and will continue to host events in March and April. JD’s Bar and Lounge hosted the Lucky 11 Casino Night in February and all eight locations of Bru’s Rooms hosted the Kids of Love - Kids helping Kids with Cancer event. Fundraisers at Anthony’s Coal Fire Grill, Sir Pizza and Coral Springs Pet Resort are also in the works for the months of March and April. She also notes that Coral Springs Relay will host their annual Bachelor & Bachelorette Auction again this year, after last year’s success.


HIGH SCHOOL MINI-RELAYS Coral Glades High School held their mini relay February 11th and Coral Springs High School will have a mini relay on April 8th. These mini relays allow the students to participate, usually during their last class of the school day. This is a great way for teens to show their support and contribute to a great cause. Last year Coral Springs High School raised over $3000 at their mini relay.


THE MAIN EVENT What exactly is Relay For Life? It’s an opportunity to participate in a moving fundraising event that is held in thousand of communities across the country through The American Cancer Society Relay For Life. While each community host a unique Relay event, they all celebrate survivors, remember loved ones and fight back against cancer by raising funds.


Relay members take turns walking or running around the track throughout the 18-24 hour event. A team member should be on the track at all times during the relay. The reason that relay is an overnight event is because “cancer never sleeps”. Each Relay begins with an inspirational Survivors Lap where participants circle the track to celebrate their personal victory over the disease. Loved ones who lost their battle with cancer are remembered and honored during The Luminaria Ceremony, where candles are lit inside sand filled bags. Participants often walk this lap in silence.
