Aloha Vulcans!

We know you have missed our annual overnight Relay for Life Event, but we hope that you join us to celebrate survivors and take part in some of your favorite pieces of Relay for Life in this week-long event.

Every year, more than 6,700 Hawaii residents are diagnosed with an invasive type of cancer. Join us and the American Cancer Society to “Save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.”

Join the Relay for Life Team in remembering our survivors, both those who are still with us and those who are not by decorating a Luminaria Bag. Luminarias honor every life touched by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently battling, or anyone who’s overcome it. We will provide all of the supplies needed, we ask that you return the bag to us by Thursday at 6:00pm so that we can include it in our Luminaria Ceremony on Thursday and include your loved ones in our time of reflection and honor. Light refreshments will be served while supplies last.

Additionally, we invite you to join our Virtual Relay Challenge though out the month of March.
