Relay for Life Maynard

Please join us for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Maynard at Alumni Field. Opening ceremonies will start at 6:30pm. Theme laps and entertainment through out the night. Luminary ceremony at 9pm.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life movement symbolizes hope and our shared goal to end a disease that threatens the lives of so many people we love. If cancer has touched your life, participating in a Relay For Life event is a way to take action and help finish the fight.

Every year Maynard’s Relay for Life team members set up tents at Alumni Field and take turns walking the track – all to bring awareness to and raise money for the American Cancer Society.

At Relay For Life you’ll find community members taking turns walking around a track lined with luminaria bags. You’ll have the opportunity to cheer for local survivors (or participate as a survivor) in our first lap of the day. Caregivers of cancer patients (currently or previously diagnosed) will then be invited to join the Survivors. Local entertainers will keep you energized. As it gets dark, we will light the luminaria bags surrounding the track in a memorable luminaria ceremony. There will be opportunities to fundraise & fight back!
