The event will run from 6 p.m. – midnight
Relay For Life is a grass roots, community-based team event. Although every Relay For Life event is different, they do have a few things in common.
Here’s a look at the Relay Schedule of Events…
Opening Ceremony – The event kicks off by honoring everyone who’s been affected by cancer and everyone who has contributed to the success of this year’s Relay season. The Knox County Opening Ceremony will be at 6:15 p.m. on June 15th, 2018.
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.
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.
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.
WNZR will bring you live coverage from the Knox County Relay for Life from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. as we talk to local team members, bring you highlights from the survivors lap, the caregivers lap and tell you about the amazing luminaria ceremony. Please join our Big Blue Crew and support the American Cancer Society.
WNZR is honored to join 24 teams and 213 participants in the fight against cancer. Please join our team and support Relay for Life.
