The Relay for Life event includes several fun activities throughout the night to keep people energized, including: music, food trucks, face painting, lawn games, raffle prizes, etc. Participants will also receive a Relay for Life T-shirt to wear at the event.

The Event Schedule includes:

Opening Ceremony: Time to get started. We kick off the event by honoring everyone who’s been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year’s Relay season.

Survivor/Caregiver Walk: Survivors and Caregivers are the heart and soul of Relay For Life events. We honor their strength and courage with every step they take. It doesn’t matter if you were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, you can walk while everyone gathers together to cheer you on.

Luminaria Ceremony: During this ceremony, we represent everyone touched by cancer with a Luminaria. Each light represents a life—a life taken by cancer, a survivor of cancer, or a support for a person still fighting the disease. It’s a powerful demonstration that gives people the opportunity to grieve but also offers comfort and hope.

Closing Ceremony: Our closing ceremony is the time to commit to take action and help lead the fight for a world free from cancer. It’s a time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished together and a time to unify for the work that needs to be done moving forward.

If any surrounding businesses or members of the community would like to form a team, or walk as an individual, please visit www.relayforlife.org/chittendenvt.
