Cruise for a Cure! Relay for Life – Fri May 17th
Want to go on a cruise that you don’t have to worry about getting seasick or being stuck at sea? Then join us on Friday, May 17th as we go “Cruisin’ For A Cure” with the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Fayette County. This year’s Relay For Life event is being held at Fayette County High School’s Football Stadium from 4:00 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. Our Cruise Director, Zach Stutts, has lined up a fun entertainment schedule with the Torch of Hope starting at 6:15 p.m., leading into our Opening Ceremonies at 6:45. Other events that you won’t want to miss include the Dollar Dude and Divas as they try to buy themselves a title by gathering the most donations from 5:30-8:30 p.m. and the lighting of our torches and luminaria starting at 9:15. Our Survivor Activity Director, Emily Stastny, has been busy coordinating with Piedmont Hospital’s Cancer Wellness Center to have fun activities for all of our survivors from 4:00 p.m. until 9:15 p.m. with a break for the Opening Ceremonies. We are thankful to all of our sponsors that help us put on this wonderful event, but want to especially thank Pain Care of Georgia and Piedmont Hospital for being our major sponsors.
Be dazzled as you get to meet our local Relay Celebrities: Lisa Hedenstrom, our 2013 Honorary Chair, and Ken Williams and Ryann Hayes, our 2013 Relay Ambassadors. Be starstruck as you spot our amazing “Dollar Dudes and Divas” strut their stuff to try to get your dollars/votes to win the crown. Have fun as you participate in games, have a chance to “Dunk a friend” in the dunk booth, jump in the jumpy Castle, and do as many other activities you can fit in. Let out your belt as you sample the culinary delights that are sure to be there: chocolate covered strawberries, popcorn, hotdogs, sodas, chips, bbq, baked goods, and much, much more. Visit exciting ports of calls and purchase souvenirs. Be a part of the touching Luminaria Ceremony as we honor all our cancer survivors and remember all of those we have lost to cancer. All of this fun can be yours for a few dollars, if you join us as we go “Cruisin’ For A Cure!”
