Relaying an important message Relay for Life of Norlanco raises money and awareness for the American Cancer Society this weekend

More than 50 teams are joining the fight against cancer when Relay for Life comes to Cocalico High School June 14 and 15.
"Norlanco is a great group," said Lorraine Korber, publicity and advertising chairperson for Relay for Life of Norlanco and a cancer survivor herself.
"We band together as individuals and teams to rally and relay against cancer."
The relay starts at 4 p.m. on Friday at the Cocalico High School track with a 5 p.m. reception to celebrate survivors and caregivers in center field. At dusk, participants will honor and remember loved ones with a candle light vigil.
Overnight activities include a visit from Reuel Johnson, national vice president of Relay for Life. Reuel is responsible for all 6,300 Relay for Life event’s Nation worldwide. Johnson will give a presentation on the international impact Relay for Life has had in 2012.
The themed overnight laps represent the 21 countries around the world that participate in Relay for Life.
"The energy of relay is upbeat, even during the very beautiful luminary service. The themed laps help motivate you to enjoy and run or walk. The concession keeps you with caffeine or hot chocolate if a brisk breeze is in the air," said Korber. "We hold up by holding on to each other. We walk together or alone yet we have so many supporters."
The event is family friendly with activities for all ages including music, games, a scavenger hunt, massages, crafts and more. The relay is open to the public and guests do not have to be a member of a team to support and rally at the Relay. There will be zumba on Saturday morning and information on nutrition and stress management, all important topics when considering the fight against cancer.
