Relay for Life
An event every day that begins at 1:00am, repeating until July 19, 2020
American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Clark County will be hosting the 2020 Relay for Life as a hybrid of two socially distant in person events and a weeklong virtual Relay on the Relay for Life of Clark County Facebook page. The events will run from July 12-19. During this week the Relay for Life of Clark County will highlight the American Cancer Society’s mission, programs and research that donations fund. The Relay is encouraging those in Clark county to donate $10 for a luminaria in honor of someone battling cancer or in memory of someone who has died from it. These luminarias will be on display during the first event to start off the Relay week, the Road to a Cure, a drive through Luminaria Experience being held from 9 to 10:30 p.m. July 12 at the Clark County Fair Grounds. Those interested in purchasing luminarias to be displayed should visit clarkcountyrelay.org.
On July 19, the organization will hold a Celebrating Survivor- Hope Parade where survivors form a car parade during the drive-thru event. Volunteers will be observing social distancing and providing special edition survivor medals and swag from 10 to 10:50 a.m. at the Clark College parking lot. At 10:55 a.m. vehicles will head over to Hudson Bay High School for a car parade and socially distant celebration.
July 12 will start the online auction of donated items and bidding will end July 18. To view and bid on items, visit www.32auctions.com/HopefromHome2020. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
The weeklong virtual Relay will end with an online closing Ceremony on July 19th, with highlights from the previous week’s events being shared.
