Relay For Life

Walking In The Light Team – Relay for Life




Are You Ready to RELAY?

Cancer is a disease that has touched every one of our lives, either personally or a loved ones.  Isn’t it time that we do something about it?  Isn’t it time to fight back?

Yes!  It is time to Relay!!  

It is time for communities across the globe to come together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much. The funds we raise truly make a difference in the fight against cancer just ask one of the nearly 14 million cancer survivors who will celebrate another birthday this year!

Won’t you join us this year in this epic fight?  The 2017 Relay for Life will be April 28th and 29th at Boyd Lee Park. 

Opening Ceremony starts at 7:00 pm with a special message from a guest speaker, the survivor lap, and the eternal survivor ceremony.

We want you on our team as Survivors, Team Members, and Supporters of our team activities!  It is easier to join the team this year – you can sign up on a paper form (available at the church office) or online at and look for the St James UMC team.  We are still going to have the bows and luminaria.  Forms are available at the information booths.

Thank you so much for your continued support in our fight against cancer!   Contact Lora Joyner (252-531-7481 or or Linnley Cox (252-327-8675  or for more information.
