posted by Daniel Crofts in events, GCC, relay for life, cancer awareness.

Genesee Community College's Wellness Center and the American Cancer Society are teaming up for the college's second annual "mini Relay for Life," which will be held Wednesday, May 1 from 3 until 9 p.m.

The theme of the race is "Be Your Own Superhero."  It will begin at the Student Union, at One College Road in Batavia.

The race can be run or walked, and will feature teams that run or walk in segments.  A "Survivor's Lap," in which cancer survivors will be invited to circle the track, will precede each race, and a "Luminaria Ceremony" honoring the memory of cancer victims as well as the living whose lives have been touched by cancer, will close the event at dusk.

White, sand-filled bags with candles set in them will light the relay's path. Each bag represents someone affected by cancer.

Admission is $10 per person and free for cancer survivors.  For more information, contact Michelle Williams at [email protected]. To make a donation, go to relayforlife.org/minigccny

Event Date and Time: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 3:00pm to 9:00pm
