New London gears up for Relay for Life
This year's theme is "carnival" and the track will be full of games and food that would be found at a carnival. The CBC Blood Mobile will be on site from 4-7 p.m. and members of the public are encouraged to come down and donate. Be The Match will also be present, and attendees can have their DNA tested and put on a register to help out someone that needs a bone marrow transplant or blood cells.
The Boy Scouts will be holding a flag retirement ceremony at 8 p.m. Anyone with flags to dispose of is encouraged to bring them to the track.
A Luminaria Ceremony will be held at 9 p.m. This is a quiet time where attendees honor and remember those who have battled cancer.
New this year is a bike and wagon parade around the track at 6:45 p.m. Children are encouraged to participate. Parade participants do not have to be on a relay team-all are invited to enjoy the parade, games and food.
The Bergmann brothers from Hortonville, who are body builders, will also be at the relay to promote good health habits and have the kids try to ring the strongman bell.
Breakfast will be served Saturday morning by the Hilby's team. The closing ceremony will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
All members of the public are invited to help celebrate, fight back and remember loved ones who are battling or have battled cancer.
