Relay For Life is 53 days away!

It will be like looking through purple-colored glasses on May 1st as local businesses “Paint the City Purple” to showcase our upcoming Relay for Life.  Support those businesses that support our fight in the battle against cancer! Our Relay at Lockport has its own web link for you to check into at http://events.cancer.org/RFLlockportNY, but here is a sampling of what you will find. I will be happy to answer all your questions about our June 21-22 event at Emmet Belknap Middle School Track.

For 2008 we are dedicating our efforts to “The year of the Child.” How better to celebrate our children then our theme this year? The Relay For Life of Lockport has chosen to delight you with a “Carnival.” A carnival you say? Yes, a carnival; and not just any carnival…where else can you experience all of the wonders and excitement “under the big tent” while also being a part of something as extraordinary as a Relay For Life? 

What to expect…

As it is still early in the planning process, it is hard to convey an all-inclusive list of events. Not to mention we don’t want to spoil all of the fun! However, listed below are plans in the works for this year’s Relay with plenty more to come… 

  • Carnival games! – pie throwing, watermelon eating, bubblegum blowing, mind-boggling fun!
  • Food! – The Popcorn Man, fried dough, cotton candy, Sno cones…
  • Entertainment! – Singing, dancing, live band, DJ, performances…
  • Interactive Friends! – Mimes, Jugglers, Clowns, Uni-cyclist, Stilt-walkers…
  • Themed Laps! – Hoola-hoops, Rock-N-Roll, Musical Chairs, PJ lap… 

Need somewhere to dunk your friend on a hot summer day? Ever wonder what it would be like to dunk a local celebrity in a tank of ice cold water? This might be your chance to find out.

Sports competitions & tournaments, face painting, team contests, scavenger hunts! In addition to a memory basket auction, chicken BBQ, team fundraisers, inspirational, touching & interactive ceremonies!

Much, Much, Much more to come…you’ll have to be there to see!

All of this while joining together as a community to raise money to eradicate cancer from this world for good. Now, it’s time to take action. Join our planning committee, start a team, join a team, make a donation, donate your time! Nothing is too small and everyone doing their part is what makes these events so successful. Without the hard-work and dedication of individuals like yourself, none of what you see above can happen.

This is YOUR chance, to make a difference. Please, contact us today!
