Relay For Life of MemphisApril 14, 2018, 2:00 pm-9:00 pm
Greater Memphis is invited to join more than 30 teams of participants on Saturday, April 14 at the Liberty Bowl’s Tiger Lane for the annual Relay For Life of Memphis. Relay empowers the entire community to join the American Cancer Society (ACS) and take a stand against cancer.
This year’s Hollywood-themed event, “Lights, Camera, RELAY!” starts at 2 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. with plenty of family-friendly fun throughout. Cancer survivors and caregivers are invited to come take an honorary first lap to start the day.
Following the honorary laps, everyone is welcome to participate in the new Purple Tutu Fun Run/Walk down Tiger Lane. A prize awaits the winner with the best purple tutu.
A luminaria ceremony at 7:30 p.m. will remember loved ones lost to cancer and honor those touched by the disease.
Music from The Memphis Connectors, Cosmic Rooster and DJ Chaos will keep folks moving throughout the event. The day will also include a “Field of Dreams Mini Olympics” for all ages, “Memphis’ Got Talent Show,” “901 Cake Pull,” silent auction, team contests, and more.
Relay teams will collect donations through the sale of food, items, and admission to games to raise funds for the life-saving mission of the ACS.
