Ready, Set, Relay
The Upland RFL will begin on June 12 at 9 a.m. with a Celebration Ceremony and the cheering on of our cancer survivors during the Survivor’s Lap, the first lap of the Relay For Life. Throughout the day as survivors, caregivers and team members walk the track there will be music, dancing, team raffles and a birthday party. Then at 9 p.m. we will pause for our candlelight Luminaria ceremony, this is a time to remember those who have fought the cancer battle. Upland resident Frances Ladner will speak about her family’s many battles with cancer followed by the Luminaria lap. The Luminaria lap will be lead by bagpipers from the UHS Pipe Band. And at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning Relayers will recommit to fighting cancer everyday during the Fight Back Ceremony.
There is a $10 registration fee for this event which is open to the public.
