ONE of the most moving elements of any Relay for Life is the candlelight ceremony.
The candlelight ceremony allows Relay participants and others to remember loved ones who have been lost to cancer and show support for those living with cancer.
It is a time to remember and a time for hope.
‘Hope’ bags are now available to purchase for $3.
The bags come with a candle and sand and will be lined around the track after dark on the opening night of the Relay on September 14.
“We’re encouraging people to decorate and write messages on the bags, either before the Relay or on the night,” ceremony organiser Maddy Foot said.
“Glitter and other items to decorate the bag will be available on the night for a gold coin donation.
You can buy your ‘Hope’ bag on or before the night. If you do purchase them early they just have to be back to organisers before the Relay.”
The candles will burn throughout the night, a guide to inspire tired bodies to keep on going.
To purchase a bag contact Maddy Foot on 0400 550 408.
