Don't delay!   Send your photos for this special tribute today!


Special Caregiver Video Added Prior to Ceremony

Prior to the Luminaria Ceremony, two short, individual video tributes will be presented.  One will honor Caregivers and feature the song “You Saved Me” by Rascal Flatts.   DJ Kevin would like to collect about 40 photos of caregivers, including photos of caregivers who have lost their friend or loved one, for this special video tribute.   (Keep in mind, if you have helped to care for a cancer patient, in any way, shape, or form... you are a caregiver.)  Please include the caregiver's name when you submit the photo.  The procedure to submit photos is listed above. 


"Miss Relay" will be crowned as  "Miss Sweet 16" during our Weekend Birthday Bash!

Looking for information about the "Miss Relay" Contest?  This year, to tie in with our birthday theme, the competition is being called the "Miss Sweet 16" Contest.  Check out the Activities Information page for more information.


"Relay Idol" is coming to Relay For Life of Wooster!   

Contest rules and procedures to register are listed on the Activities Information page. 



The April 15th Team Information Meeting includes:  Campsite selection ; collection of donated items to Hope Lodge ; collection of the cardboard tubes from rolls of paper towels; scheduling of team photos   to be taken at RFL.
