Relay For Life of Madison/Ridgeland

Madison and Ridgeland cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, and teams of walkers from schools, companies, places of worship, and more will come together for the American Cancer Society Relay For Life® of Madison/Ridgeland.  

Relay For Life of Madison/Ridgeland will take place on Friday, May 1, 2015 from 6:00pm – midnight at Liberty Park.

Local cancer survivors and their caregivers are invited to participate in the celebratory first lap at the annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Madison/Ridgeland. The Survivors Lap will start 6:00pm, and anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer may participate. As the survivors walk, other event participants will cheer them on in a demonstration of support and celebration. The five-year survival rate for all cancers has risen to 68 percent, and there are an estimated 14 million Americans alive today who have been diagnosed with the disease.

SkinkyFeet Athletics will kick off their first Retro Run 5K at 8:30pm as part of the evening’s activities.  The run winds participants through Liberty Park, some clad in glow in the dark accessories.  Participants are encouraged to wear their best “Retro” gear and come out to run, walk or dance the 3.21 mile course.  Go to www.stinkyfeetathletics.com/retrorun for more information or to register.  

A touching Luminaria Ceremony, where candles are lit in honor and memory of locals who have battled cancer, will happen at 10:00pm.

In order to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Relay For Life, the 2015 Relay theme will be “Taking it back to the 80s – Celebrating 30 Years of Hope!” Relay teams will be dressed in their 80s best and the night’s activities will be done 80s style!

The community is invited to attend the event free of charge.  To register a team or get more information go to RelayForLife.org/MadisonRidgelandMS or contact Megan McBeth at 601-321-5500 or megan.mcbeth@cancer.org.
