On Saturday, the American Cancer Society will hold its annual Relay For Life event at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.
This year’s relay will be a 12-hour event with indoor and outdoor tracks. Opening ceremonies begin at noon with a cancer survivors and caregivers lap starting at 12:30 p.m.
Relay will feature six themes that change every two hours: superheroes, Disney, storybook/nursery rhymes, pirate, western and patriotic.
The indoor track will feature ceremonies, team challenges, music, games, karaoke and a variety of entertainment to encourage people throughout the entire relay. The outdoor track will be a carnival midway theme with food, vendors, games, face painting, a dunk tank, spin the wheel for a prize and a bounce house.
New this year is a survivor zone where cancer survivors will get pampered with a variety of complimentary wellness services provided by the Look Good Feel Better Program, Beauticontrol and Sierra Foot and Ankle. Also new this year is the “Dunk a Hunk” dunk tank fundraiser.
