The Relay For Life event is a community gathering where everyone can participate in the fight against cancer. Relay for Life brings together people from all walks of life, who can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten the lives of our loved ones or claim another year of anyone’s life. Everyone is welcome to come, you don’t have to be a Team Member, Cancer Survivor, Caregiver, this is a family oriented community event. The Douglas County Relay For Life will be held on Friday, July 12th beginning at 5:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. When the sun goes down, hundreds of luminaries light the way under the stars to remember those lost to cancer, those fighting cancer and those who have fought cancer and won! This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and perseverance with which we all continue to fight.
Luminaries can be created in memory of or in honor of someone, suggested donation for the luminaries are $10 each. You can purchase ahead of time or at the event.
There are kids games, entertainment to include Blonde & the Bohunk, kiddie parade, late night dance competition, fundraising lane, free-will donation supper from 5-6pm then 7-8pm, and more. It really is a family and community event.
