La Mirada~The Relay for Life La Mirada/Whittier will be held May 18 through May 19 at Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center. Relay for Life is a 24-hour community gathering designed to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and raise funds for cancer research, services and advocacy.

The day begins on May 18 at 9 a.m. with a “Survivors Lap” during which cancer survivors are honored, followed by a second lap where survivors are joined by their family and caregivers. We are adding something new this year by having our oncologists, radiologists, nurse navigators, and nursing staff that made surviving Cncer possible, join our survivors for the Caregiver Lap.

Fun activities will be held throughout the event including riding down the Splash! Buccaneer Bay waterslides on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. and the cost is $5 per person, or free to 2019 Buccaneer Bay season pass holders.

At 9 p.m. luminaries are placed around the track for those being honored for surviving, those who are currently fighting cancer and those who are being memorialized.

The event closes on May 19 with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Kiwanis Club followed by a “Fight Back Ceremony” where the community and individuals pledge to work to eradicate cancer.
