  • Relay For Life participants pass a sign that reads

The Road to Recovery program provides free rides to and from treatments for cancer patients who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Participants celebrate their survivors and caregivers. It is a time where what I went through was not in vain, because the American Cancer Society is raising money and awareness to fight this horrendous disease.

"1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men in our country will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime, and the Relay For Life gives everyone in our community an opportunity to help support the search for a cure", says Mark Shaw, owner and principal agent of the Mark Shaw Agency. Help make it a reality.

The community's annual Relay for Life event is again planned at Canyon High School. The Relay will run from 5 to 11 p.m. Form a team and volunteer for the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life today. Mark and his team look forward to helping families protect the things that are most important - family, home, vehicle and more. We are going to start the celebration in May with a Survivor dinner celebrating our heroes, which is what Relay is all about.

"We're trying to bring in more people to attend who normally wouldn't and help educate them while they're there about what the American Cancer Society does", she said.

Another memorable moment is our Luminary Ceremony held about 9 p.m. where all the luminaries are lit. You can participate and walk with or without a dog; all are welcome to this event. This is a family-friendly community event that includes music, games, silent auction and many laps.

This year's event will be held 6-10 p.m. April 28 at the parking lot of Withers Auditorium. Following the meal, two quilts were given to two of the survivors as door prizes. "We also want to educate them about Relay". Come and help us finish the fight.
