Weston – Get ready to RELAY this weekend!

The American Cancer Society’s 2010 Relay For Life of Weston invites everyone to come out for the celebration. April 24-25, 2010 was proclaimed Relay For Life of Weston Weekend by the City of Weston, in a Proclamation signed today by Weston Mayor, Eric Hersh.

This family-oriented team event brings participants from all parts of the community together in a “celebration of life.” Businesses, civic clubs, churches, friends, and families take turns walking in relay fashion while they also celebrate the critical role the American Cancer Society plays in the fight against cancer.

The Relay For Life of Weston takes place at the Cypress Bay High School football field and stadium on April 24-25, 2010 beginning at 5:30PM.

The event program includes:

  • An Opening Ceremony, featuring guest speakers Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, both cancer survivors
  • Initiation of Victory and Team Laps
  • On-going Silent Auction, with incredible offerings
  • Raffles, entertainment and activities including lumineria decorating table
  • Lumineria ceremony at dark

Luminerias can be purchased for a little as $5 as a memorial to loved ones touched by or lost to the battle with cancer.  They can be purchased online or at the event.  In a light of hope, the hundreds of luminerias purchased will be lit after dark in a memorable and striking ceremony.

The American Cancer Society is the largest source of nonprofit, nongovernmental cancer research funding in the United States.  Funds raised by Relay For Life of Weston teams and activities go to the American Cancer Society to fight back against this disease.
