Luminaria Ceremony

Luminaria Ceremony

This ceremony is the highlight of any Relay throughout the world and is dedicated to those who lost their battle to cancer, in honour of those who won and those who are still fighting the disease.

Personally decorated Luminaria Bags form the outline of the track, in remembrance of or as a dedication to a very special warrior who lost the battle or in honour of a courageous cancer survivor who is still fighting or who has won the battle against cancer.

Candles placed into each Luminaria Bag are lit after dark at the beginning of this very inspirational and emotional ceremony.

These candles burn throughout the night, reminding us why we continue to fight the disease.

Luminaria Bags can be purchased from your local CANSA Relay For Life Committee

Dedicate a Virtual Luminaria
