Walkers (and joggers) will go around the clock in the battle against cancer during the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Sugar Land, now in its 8th year. Teams of Sugar Land residents will gather at Oyster Creek Park on April 29 at 7 P.M. for an overnight relay against cancer. Relay For Life is a family-oriented team event where participants can walk relay-style around the track and take part in fun activities off the track. Teams can include coworkers, club members, family and friends who have gathered donations prior to the event.
All are invited to attend the Luminaria ceremony, which takes place at 9:00 p.m. To honor the community’s cancer survivors and caregivers while remembering those lost to the disease, Luminaria bags will line the walk at Oyster Creek Park and will be lit as part of the Luminaria ceremony and burn until 7:00 a.m. Luminaria may be purchased for a minimum of $5 at the event website www.relayforlife.org/sugarlandtx through Tuesday, April 26 and at the Luminaria table at Oyster Creek Park the night of the event.
