Sagicor Shines at Relay for Life
The Jamaica Cancer Society's Relay For Life is an annual event that offers every Jamaican a life-changing moment to celebrate the lives of their loved ones who battled cancer and survived, or an opportunity to remember loved ones who battled the disease but unfortunately passed on.
The event started out as an avenue to fight back against the disease. The night's event is filled with stories of victory and hope, dancing and singing - a total celebration of life.
This year, the Sagicor Foundation had a special memory board where Relay For Life patrons were given the opportunity to leave their handprints with a special message to/for their loved one who has battled the disease.
This year, Relay For Life took place on Saturday, June 11, at the Police Officers' Club in St Andrew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday. The highlight of the evenings proceedings was the Luminaria Ceremony, where the walking track was lined with bags consisting of candles placed inside sand-filled bags and personalised in honour or in memory of loved ones. The special lap was ushered by a bagpipe player.
