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, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.
At Relay, teams of people can camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events and each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.
In the summer of 2009 some of our church members decided to form a Relay team to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society. Our team name "The Spirit of St. Luke's" represents not only our commitment to remember and honor our members and friends who have been affected by cancer, but also our commitment to have fun with our church family, while supporting such a great cause through our different fundraising activities throughout the year.
