If you are a cancer survivor, you are invited to participate for FREE! Cancer survivors are asked to register instead at www.relayforlife.org/centralla so that you are not charged for the run. Everyone is invited to join us for the Central Gleaux Run put on by Relay for Life of Central! Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society. This is a family-friendly event. Walkers and runners of any skill level are invited. Registration will be open at the event, but the prices will rise to $30 per adult and $15 per child 12 and under. Registration includes a t-shirt. There will be a clock at the finish line, but runners will need to make note of their own times. Participants are invited to wear glow or light-up items. Thank you for not bringing pigments or paints, as this is being held on school property. There will be kids' activities, a silent auction, and food, drinks, and glow items for sale at the event. All proceeds from items sold will also go to the American Cancer Society. Join us after the run for a luminaria ceremony honoring those in our lives who have been affected by cancer and to remember those we have lost to the disease. Luminaries will be available for purchase at the event to be included in the ceremony.Event schedule and times
