Lakes Regional Park
At Relay, individuals and teams walk a track to remember family and friends who have lost the fight to cancer; to celebrate survivors of this dread disease, and to raise funds for local and national programs to help cancer patients, caregivers and survivors. Surrounding the track are Relay Teams selling food or offering chance drawings and other fund raising activities. There’s a variety of games and competitions as well as music from the main stage. The main stage will host a variety of entertainers, including the musical styling’s of “Caribbean Cowgirl” Holly Morris from 2 pm—3 pm; country rock star Grayson Rogers from 3:30 pm–5pm, and a steel drum performance from 7:45 pm-8:50 pm.The great thing about the Relay program is that, except for a small amount set aside to support research at the national level, all funds raised at Relay events stays in Lee County to support the wide variety of programs that provide resources and support to individuals battling cancer, their caregivers and cancer survivors.
