Join Us For The Estes Park Relay For Life!
Well here we are another year later and kicking off the 11th annual Relay for Life here in Estes Park. The Relay for Life is a life-changing event that brings people together to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight. Additionally, Relay helps us to remember loved ones lost to the disease.
Everyone’s reason to Relay is as unique as his or her own personal story. At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, and support from others who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease. You have a chance to meet people in the community who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer in our lifetime. You can thank all the people who have done so much to support you through your personal cancer experience. And you can gather together with friends, family, and colleagues to laugh, cry, and create lasting memories.
If you haven’t registered – no problem – you can do it at the track. If you aren’t a member of a team – again, no problem – come on out and enjoy the evening. We will have pipers, DJ, food and much more! Your kids will enjoy it too as we’ll have a face painter, pizza and games for them. Be sure to bring your smile as celebrating is a big part of the Relay. We are here to find a cure for cancer and every step you take at Relay, for however long helps to save lives.
Finally, we have opportunities to volunteer and assist. You have skills that we can use. For instance, if you’re a coach you can do something like Michigan State University Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Izzo, and wife Lupe are doing. They have joined Coaches vs. Cancer, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). All ages are welcome and can help.
The Estes Park Relay will be held at the High School stadium on Friday, July 20th with registration beginning at 4:00 p.m. If you can’t participate, you can still make tax-deductable donations to our web site at www.estesparkrelay.org. Come on out and help us to celebrate more birthdays!!
