The 2012 Relay for Life of Wissahickon Valley will begin at 10 a.m., May 19, through 10 a.m., May 20 at Wissahickon High School.
The Relay for Life is a life-changing event, giving everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember lost loved ones, and fight back against the disease. At the Relay, teams of people camp out at Wissahickon High School and take turns walking or running around the track. Each team is asked to have at least one representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relay is a 24-hour event.
There are 49 teams participating this year, who have raised more than $170,000.
Admission is free and open to anyone. More than 25 crafters will showcase their wares from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., a special children's activity will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., and art projects, carnival games and face painting are available. At 9 p.m., the track will be illuminated in a symbol of hope and as a tribute to those touched by cancer.
