Relay For Life Events Come to North Texas

The American Cancer Society Denton Relay For Life 2014 will take place from noon to midnight, April 12, at Guyer High School. The opening ceremony brings everyone together for a high-energy event kickoff to celebrate


the lives of those that have battled cancer, to inspire hope by sharing recent accomplishments and progress and to remind everyone that while we are winning this battle, fighting cancer is a year-round priority.

The Survivors Lap begins at 12:15 p.m., where cancer survivors take the first circuit around the track cheered on by the crowd, celebrating their victory over the disease. Caregivers follow at 12:30 p.m., walking a lap so they can be honored for their support. Then, each team will have at least one walker on the track at all times for the next 11 hours. A luminaria ceremony takes place at 9 p.m., providing an opportunity for people to work through grief and find hope.

Other Relays for Life taking place soon include SMU/Dallas on April 5; McKinney on April 25; The Colony on May 2; Azle on May 9; Richardson/Plano on May 9, Wylie on May 9; SE Denton (Lewisville) on May 16; North Dallas on May 17; Allen on May 30; and Frisco on May 30.
