Compact schedule set for Relay for Life
space
A compact schedule with a western flair will mark the 2018 Relay for Life, a major fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society, on Saturday.

Give Cancer the Boot is the theme for the annual event, slated from 3 p.m. to midnight in the Heinzen Pavilion at Peaceful Valley Park.

We want the Relay for Life to be a celebration of the work we do for the fight against cancer and for it to be a fun atmosphere so Howdy Partner! Let’s Rope in a Cure!, Royce said.

In sticking to the theme, events will include a cornhole tournament, a Dude Looks Like a Cowgirl contest, CURE the Bull and more, Royce said.

There will also be live music throughout the afternoon and evening, a silent auction, outdoor movie screening featuring Jumanji, food, games and more.

Activities will open with a welcome and introductions at 3 p.m., with check-in continuing until 5 p.m. and luminaries on sale until 9 p.m.

The opening ceremony and survivors lap will get underway at 5 p.m., remarks by honorary survivor Julie Langseth.

She is very excited to share her story, Royce said.

There will also be the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and color guard led by Boy Scout Troop 644.

The luminaria ceremony at 9:30 p.m. is traditionally among the more poignant moments at the annual Relay. Joe Fittante, who lost his daughter, Julia, to cancer, will sing Tears in Heaven, accompanied by David Schneider on guitar. Gary Hartl will read names.

The evening will continue with a pizza party in the pavilion at 10:30 a.m., team captain and committee recognition at 11 p.m. and closing ceremonies and awards at midnight.

This year’s Relay goal is $52,000. While Saturday’s event will go a long way to attaining it, Royce stressed that fund-raisers are held throughout the year, including meat raffles, brat frys, Bowl-for-A-Cure and fund-raiser at Bula’s Barn. They are sponsored by the various Relay teams.

We try to keep fund-raising for the fight against cancer going all year long, Royce said.

Over the decades, Relay for Life has raised thousands of dollars, shared hundreds of stories and given hope to countless families.

Through the years I have met amazing people and have heard stories from survivors and caregivers who have touched me in a different way, Royce said. Relay is for every cancer survivors, every caregiver and to fine a cure for this horrible disease.
