Canal Winchester and Groveport residents will join together at the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Canal Winchester and Groveport.
The event runs from 4 p.m. until midnight on June 22 at Canal Winchester High School, 300 Washington St., Canal Winchester. Relay teams, which independently fund raise throughout the year, connect with one another at Relay for Life to raise funds and awareness together, to celebrate, and to focus on creating a world without cancer.
Featured activities will include a “Miss Relay” Pageant Walk for male contestants, theme laps, inflatable games for kids, and a silent auction. A luminaria ceremony will take place at 10 p.m. The luminaria ceremony honors cancer survivors and those who have lost the battle to cancer as well. During the ceremony, Canal Winchester Mayor Mike Ebert, who recently battled two forms of cancer, is expected to share some thoughts with the audience.
Local cancer survivors are invited to take part in the Relay for Life opening ceremony and “Survivors’ Lap” just after 4 p.m. Survivors are then invited to attend a special “Survivors’ Dinner” beginning at 5 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.
