You can contact any team member to purchase a luminaria.

Help us shed light on the fight…

Whether it’s a parent, a sibling, a friend or a neighbor, we all know someone who has been touched by cancer.  Relay For Life is one way of recognizing loved ones who are surviving cancer and remembering those who have lost the battle.  At dusk, we quietly remember those whose lives have been touched by cancer.  Luminaria bags line the track, each bearing the name of a loved one.  This ceremony of light symbolizes the hope and courage with which we all continue to fight cancer.  For a donation, you can remember someone who lost his or her battle to cancer, or honor someone winning the fight.


CCMC Cure Seekers Relay For Life Team was one of eleven teams that raised over $1,500 which was reported in The Clay Center Dispatch. We are happy to report CCMC Cure Seekers final amount was $4,340.08. The Relay For Life total was $33,887.31.
