Relay For Life participants and donors remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those battling the disease by dedicating luminaria.

During the Relay For Life Luminaria Ceremony, votive candles are lit inside of personalized bags to shine a light on the fight against cancer. The power of this ceremony lies in providing an opportunity for people to share their grief and find hope

Each luminaria is personalized with a name, photo, message or drawing in memory or honor of a friend or loved one who has been affected by cancer. Luminaria can also be dedicated in support of a Relay participant.
