One of the most moving, emotional, and motivating part of Relay For Life is the Luminaria ceremony. Providing the opportunity to remember and to donate dollars to fight cancer, luminaria helps people come together to remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those who have won their battle.

As the sun sets over campsites and darkness falls, the night is broken by the flickering light of hundreds of white bags, each bearing the name of someone who has battled cancer and oftentimes decorated to represent the love of that person. Some celebrate cancer survivors, while others help us honor and remember those gone too soon. Each represents someone special who has been profoundly affected by cancer and the family and friends who continue to fight back in their honor.
