The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.
Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser. It’s a life-changing experience. At Relay, every person in the community has a chance to celebrate, remember, and fight back. And every person who participates joins others around the globe as part of this worldwide movement to end cancer.
Everyone’s reason to Relay is as unique as their own personal story. At Relay, you can find healing, comfort, and support from others who have faced cancer or who have lost a loved one to the disease. You have a chance to meet people in the community who are equally as passionate about finding an end to cancer in our lifetime. You can thank all the people who have done so much to support you through your personal cancer experience. And you can gather together with friends, family, and colleagues to laugh, cry, and create lasting memories.
No matter why you take part in Relay, however, one thing is clear: with every step you take, you are helping the American Cancer Society save lives. With your help, we aren’t just fighting one type of cancer – we’re fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Each person who shares the Relay experience can take pride in knowing that they are working to create a world where this disease will no longer threaten the lives of our loved ones or claim another year of anyone’s life.

“The best way we can pay tribute and honor Gordy is to redouble our efforts in the 2012 Relay season … adding one more team, one more team member or one more additional donation…. and creating an extra meaningful Relay experience for those touched by that Relay spirit that we all learned from Gordy. Let’s all commit to lighting a special luminaria in honor of the founder of Relay at every Relay across the world.”

The Lamar County Relay for Life Survivor Dinner will be on Saturday, May 19. It will be held at the Calvary Methodist Church (3105 Lamar Ave.) at 6:00pm.
This is a very exciting event because it is the first time that Lamar County Relay for Life has had a banquet dinner for the survivors and they want it to be very special.
They are asking the relay teams, and anyone else who would like, to possibly volunteer to help clean and serve Saturday before and after the dinner. The help will be appreciated so much.
If any teams or team members would like to volunteer, please contact Molly Woodall at email@example.com for more information.

In May 2003, Chris Phelan organized the first Ride Of Silence in Dallas after endurance cyclist Larry Schwartz was hit by the mirror of a passing bus and was killed. The ride was a solemn event, to remember Larry and all cyclists killed while riding their bikes. It was only suppose to be a one time event, but as word got out about the ride, many cyclists contacted Chris with the desire to participate in this event.
Although cyclists have a legal right to share the road with motorists, the motoring public often isn’t aware of these rights, and sometimes not aware of the cyclists themselves. The ride has several goals:
~To HONOR those who have been injured or killed
~To RAISE AWARENESS that we are here
~To ask that we all SHARE THE ROAD
Join cyclists worldwide in a silent slow-paced ride in honor of those who have been injured or killed while cycling.
Our Local Ride of Silence will be held on
WEDNESDAY MAY 16th at 7:00pm
to coincide with other R.O.S. Events nationwide.
Over 700 cyclists are killed each year while riding. Most of them occur in our cities, and suburbs. With this ride, we hope to educate motorists that cyclists have the legal right to the road and to watch out for us.
The Ride of Silence is similar to a funeral procession. Therefore, the ride will be:
SLOW (max 12 Miles/per hour).
SHORT (approx. 8 miles)
SILENT There will be no talking, only silence, to remember and honor those fallen.
Also, please…..no cell phones or I-Pods.
We will assemble near the Flag Pole at the front of the Civic Center beginning at 6:30pm & the ride will leave from the Civic Center at 7:00pm, travel west on Jefferson Rd., Make a lap around the downtown Square, and return to the Civic Center ..
*NO REGISTRATION FEE *HELMETS REQUIRED.
