2019 Relay for Life at Rocket City Best Fest

This year Huntsville Relay for Life will be at Rocket City Best Fest.  Join us on Saturday June 8, 2019 to celebrate, remember and fight back!  Activities start at 4:00 pm at Big Spring Park and include:

Battle of the Burger

Rocket City's Battle of the Burger:  The Battle of the Burger will recognize Huntsville's best burgers from two divisions - Restaurants AND Backyard.  Think your backyard grilling skills can take home bragging rights?  To apply, email kaki.morrow@cancer.org.  Just want to eat the best burgers in town?  Purchase tickets from kaki.morrow@cancer.org.

Kid Friendly Activities:  Kids love to jump and play and there will be lots of fun for them in a Bounce House, Flamingo Ring Toss, Nerf Guns Shoot and more!

Survivor Dinner:  Our survivors are our unsung heroes! To honor them, the American Cancer Society will host the annual Survivor Dinner.  The event is a chance to show respect to our survivors and gives them a chance to meet others who have faced similar battles and persevered. The Survivor Tent will open at 4:00 and dinner will be served at 5:30.  To register, email kaki.morrow@cancer.org.

Survivor Walk:  If you or anyone you love has ever heard the words "you have cancer", you know how much it affects us and the people around us.  Survivors are invited to take a Celebratory Walk at 5:00 so you and those who teamed with you in your fight can cheer your victory together.

Fundraising Teams:  The mission of the American Cancer Society is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.  Help them by joining our Therapy Achievements Team or form your own team.   Together we can fund breakthrough research, create empowering resources for people to outsmart cancer, enable local communities to support those affected, and convene powerful activists to create awareness and impact. The more money you raise, the more lives saved!

Luminaries:  One of the most touching part of the night is honoring someone's fight in a public way. These glowing paper bags and balloons serve as a reminder that we are not giving up hope.  You can salute a cancer survivor by placing their name under "in honor of" or you can remember someone who has lost their battle by placing their name under "in memory of".  Your contribution will make a difference and will help save lives.
