by Jamaica Cancer Society
(Kingston, Jamaica)

What: Relay For Life
When: June 17-18, 2017
Venue: Police Officers' Club
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Gate Entry: $1,200.00

The Purpose:
Relay For Life is a unique, fun way to raise money for the Jamaica Cancer Society while increasing cancer awareness and celebrating survivorship.

The Event:
Relay For Life involves teams of 10 or more persons taking turns walking or running around a track, relay-style, for the duration of the event. It is a non-competitive, team-building event. Participants come from businesses, industry, churches, schools, service clubs and other organizations. Teams are formed to rally in support of a co-worker or loved one who is fighting or has lost the battle with cancer.

The Fun:
Teams camp around the track and participate in a variety of activities while waiting their turn to relay. From karaoke and socaerobics, to lots of fun during the Purple Party, we have something for all.

The Healing:
Relay For Life is a Celebration of Cancer Survivorship. For the cancer survivor, it provides an opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones and share experiences.

The first lap of the Relay, on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. is led by cancer survivors. Later, at 10:00 p.m. the Luminaria Ceremony is held to remember those who have lost the battle.
