Come ROAR with us in the fight against cancer on Saturday, August 5th at Central Park in Trinidad from 4pm to 10pm. ROAR for Relay for Life big annual event where we celebrate cancer survivors, remember lost loved ones, and fight back for those currently in the fight. We have fun for the whole family with live music from Eliot Baker Band, bounce house for the kids, face painting for everyone, bra pong, sand art, dunk tank, corn hole toss and more fun family activities. Enter our whipped cream pie eating contest! Visit our amazing silent auction and merchandise booths. Yummy food vendors!

 

Most important is our cancer survivor dinner at 5:30pm that is free for all cancer survivors and their care givers. Dinner is provided by Tequilas. After the opening ceremony around 4:30pm we have our survivor and caregiver recognition lap where we cheer and celebrate them as they walk the track. At 9pm is our beautiful luminaria ceremony. We turn the lights off. Then we walk a lap of silence with only white paper sacks that line the tracks, luminated by just one tea light. The bags have cancer patient names on them so they are lighting our way. This lap is very moving and should be experienced by everyone!

 

All of our fundraising goes toward American Cancer Society for research and their patient service programs.  Gate fee is $3 for adults and $1 for kids, 10 years and under are free) Also Teams & team members, all cancer survivors & caregivers are always free too.

 

We always need volunteer help for our event. If you need community service hours, you can be credited for helping.
