Moving spirit by CANSA Relayers
KEIMOS – Despite challenging circumstances, the committee of CANSA Relay for Life Keimoes and the local community persevered in the fight against cancer. The nine cancer survivors who attended were humbled by the cheers by the CANSA Relayers cheered, as they took part in the Survivor Lap.
The Keimoes community members and businesses celebrated their fourth CANSA Relay For Life in style, with 300 people and 5 teams taking part. The overall event was well-presented as the CANSA Relayers were each given a chance to reflect on their role in joining CANSA in the fight against cancer.
The caregivers walked around the track with their own creative banner to complete the Caregivers’ Lap. Leading up to the Luminaria Ceremony there was an absolute moment of silence, in complete darkness. The CANSA Relayers were reminded of the gift of life and the importance of sharing the impact that cancer has had on those who remain after they had lost a loved one.
The committee members rose to the occasion and a committee member, Pastor Tommy, closed the ceremony on a high-note, giving each of the CANSA Relayers a task for the rest of the year.
