Relay For Life Goes This Evenuing - June 7th
This is the night 32 teams representing various community groups and organizations have been waiting for. Several months of fund raising will culminate in the 10th Annual Relay for Life at the Robbs Centennial Complex in Amherst. Along with raising money for cancer research, Relay for Life is a community celebration. As participants make their way around the track on the baseball diamond at the Robb Centennial Complex, there’ll be numerous musical acts playing as well as other forms of entertainment and food. The major highlight is the always moving Luminary ceremony that takes place at around 9 p.m. in which several thousand luminaries lining the track will be lit helping guide participants around the complex in honour or memory of someone who is fighting cancer, a survivor, or someone who lost their battle against the dreaded disease. The event runs from 7:00 Friday night to 7:00 Saturday morning.
