You are invited to come and see what Relay is all about, have fun and enjoy the festivities, all while making a difference in the fight against cancer. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend between the hours of 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. Saturday.
A Day of Drawing tent (Chinese-auction style) will be available with a wide variety of prizes. The drawing will be at 10 a.m. on Saturday and you do not need to be present to win. Ticket sales will start at 6 p.m. on Friday and end at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
There will be games and activities during the entire Relay immediately following the Survivor Lap, which will occur at approximately 6 p.m. If you have a friend, family member or acquaintance that has suffered from cancer or given care to a survivor, this is an event that will touch a deep place in your heart.
Vesta Mobile Wood-Fired Pizza of Shirley, and The Slush Lady of Pepperell, will be available from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday evening
Please note: The laps between the hours of 11 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday are not open to the general public. You must be a registered walker to participate in those laps. It is never too late to join a team or register as a survivor!
