St. John Relay For Life Press Release

St. John Relay For Life: Lighting a Path Towards Hope

The Luminaria Ceremony is the soul of the Relay For Life. At 9:00 PM on February 11th at Julius Sprauve School ball field, Cruz Bay, St. John, we will quietly remember those whose lives have been touched by cancer. Candles in white tribute bags will line the track, each bearing the name of your loved one. In the soft glow of the candles we reflect on the courage and strength of all who are affected by cancer.

Your donation of $5.00 will ensure a light in honor of your loved one. Remember a loved one lost, and honor the survivors

For many people who attend Relay For Life, one of the most moving parts of the event is the Luminaria Ceremony. As the lights dim over the field and team member’s complete laps, the night is brightened by the glow of lighted bags called Luminaria, each of which has a special meaning. Some Luminaria celebrate the survivorship of people who have battled cancer and lived to tell the tale. Many commemorate the lives of those who have been lost to this disease. All represent a person who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to be touched by that experience.

Please light a candle in support of or in memory of a friend or loved one who has had cancer. Your contribution will help save lives, give hope and empower people through the American Cancer Society and its lifesaving mission.

Luminaria bags will be available for a donation of $5.00 most Saturday and Sundays mornings at the Marketplace and the following Saturdays at Post Office, January 7, 21, and February 4. Just look for our Relay For Life sign. You can make a $5.00 donation for a Luminaria at the St John Community Foundation Office at the Marketplace, or by calling Karen Radtke @ 779-4419. Luminarias  are also available on our website at  www.stjohnrelayforlife.org
