Relay for Life Includes Parade, Activities and Family Entertainment

The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of St. Thomas will hold a variety of events Saturday and Sunday at the Charlotte Amalie High School track.

Relay for Life teams will take to the school track at 4 p.m. Saturday to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. A parade from the CAHS gymnasium to the track will kick-start the event. Parade troupes, majorettes and a marching band will participate in the parade, led by this year’s Miss Relay for Life. The troupes, participants, bands and other entries will take a lap around the track as spectators enjoy the parade and entertainment.

An opening ceremony immediately following the parade will signal the first set of team members to take their places on the track. The goal of each team is to keep a member on the track at all times throughout the overnight event.

Entertainment is slated throughout the event, celebrating people who have battled cancer and remembering those lost or fighting back against the disease. Performers will include Poizon Band, Sweeta Band, Full Circle Band and Mas Impac Band.
