Saturday, June 25 – Sunday, June 26 The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones lost, and to fight back against the disease. At Relay For Life of Salem, teams of people camp out on Grant Field at Salem High School and take turns walking or running around a track or path from Saturday, June 25 at 4 p.m. through Sunday, June 26 at noon. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event, because cancer never sleeps. Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays. Relay starts with a Survivors Lap, an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories they’ve achieved over cancer. After dark, they will honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence. Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where they make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer. No matter where you are, there’s a place for you at Relay and you can make a difference today by signing up online to start your own team, or by simply making a donation.
