Second Annual Relay for Life

May 19, 2017  / 6:00 PM until 10:00 PM / Keystone Stadium
Keystone Local School District is preparing to host the 2nd Annual Relay for Life with the help of Keystone High School's Youth 4 Youth Organization and members of the Lagrange United Methodist Church. If you have ever wondered how you can make a difference for those battling cancer, this is a perfect opportunity to make that difference. Last year, with help from the community, we were able to raise over $5,000 to help the American Cancer Society. This year our event will be held on May 19, 2017 at the Keystone High School Track

What do I do?

One way to be involved is to create a team of 8-15 members. Student Groups, teams, and classes! Go on to www.relayforlife.org/lagrange-keystoneoh and register your team and have members sign up! Share the link on social media to raise money for your team! Sign up before April 12th and receive a prize from the American Cancer Society.  Teams will set up a “camp” area around the track. Please provide your own tables, chairs and tent. Members of the team will take turns walking or running around the track.  Each team must have a member on the track at all times while music, games, and activities are being run by others.  Money raised goes directly to the American Cancer Society. Last year we were able to raise over $5,000!

 Event Highlights:

Opening Ceremony - During a relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they've overcome. We kickoff the event with a Survivors Lap and Caregivers Lap.  They walk the track as others cheer them on.

Luminaria Ceremony - During the Luminaria Ceremony, we remember people lost to the disease, and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer.  During this ceremony there is a speech as well as glow sticks and/or candles that are passed around. The luminarias are lit and the lights are turned off. A silent walk is taken around the track to think of those that we have walking for.

Closing Ceremony - The event inspires Relay participants to take action against a disease that has taken too much. 

 “Together, let’s paint the world purple and spread hope”
