6 to 8 p.m.
In March 2009 Miami Beach will join some 4,200 other communities by hosting Relay For Life, honoring cancer survivors, caregivers and those who have lost their battle to cancer. Join neighbors and supporters of the American Cancer Society as they kick off the March event in Miami. Relay For Life is an overnight community celebration where individuals and teams camp out, barbecue, dance, and take turns walking around a track relay-style to raise funds to fight cancer. At nightfall, participants will light hundreds of luminarias and place them around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors as well as friends and family members lost to the disease. If you wish to honor a cancer victim or just help the cause, show up and bring family members and friends to learn more about the Relay For Life.
