Maui Relay For Life in Lahaina

By Mark Harbison

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life will hold an event on July 24th at the Lahaina Recreation Center Park at 6p.m. to fight cancer. It's not just a simple fundraiser. It's a chance for the community to get together to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, to remember loved ones who passed, and to fight back against the disease.

Teams will camp out at the Lahaina Recreation Center at take turns walking or running on the track or path. Each team should have a representative on the track at all times during the event. This symbolizes the fact that cancer never sleeps and we have to be equally vigilant to beat it. The Relay is an overnight event and may last 24 hours.

Here are the event's three main traditions:

Celebrate - The Relay kicks off with a Survivor's Lap, which is an inspirational event to celebrate those who have beaten their cancer.

Remember - The Luminaria Ceremony is held after dark, and those who have been lost to cancer are honored. Participants bring bags full of sand with a candle inside. The bags bear the names of loved ones lost to the disease. Many participants will walk in silence to honor them.

Fight Back - Lastly, there is the Fight Back Ceremony where participants make a personal commitment to take up the fight against cancer and to help save lives.

You can help out in a lot of ways. Participation is encouraged, but if you can't, there is always the option of simply making a donation to the cause. For more information, here is the Relay For Life website.
