The relay begins at 6 p.m. May 17 with open ceremony including remarks from a cancer survivor followed by the survivors lining the track for the opening lap. After sundown comes the Luminaria Ceremony when candles are lighted to honor the community’s cancer survivors and remember those lost to the disease.
