Relay For Life of Falls Church Gets Under Way on Saturday

Sixty-five teams with nearly 600 participants have already raised nearly $50,000 in support of the American Cancer Society for the sixth annual Relay for Life of Falls Church, which gets under way this Saturday at 6 p.m. at the track at George Mason High School.

Cancer survivors will be honored at a reception beginning at 5 p.m. in the cafetorium at Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School. Luminaria given in memory of persons who have died of cancer or in honor of cancer survivors will be lit as dusk falls at 9:30 p.m. for the Luminaria Ceremony. Members of the community are invited to come and participate before the field is cleared for registered teams, who will keep a team member walking, weather permitting, throughout the night.
