No matter what age or stage someone is as they face cancer, they are surviving that moment, that day, that week. As a way to celebrate their strength, hard work and perseverance, Relay For Life of Tuscarawas County is hosting the first of several events aimed at survivors on Thursday, May 4 at Buckeye Career Center in New Philadelphia inside the Trumpet Room. A special Sur- vivor Luncheon, catered by students at Buckeye Career Center, begins at 11:30 a.m. It will feature incredible homemade foods as well as giveaways and appreciation gifts for everyone in attendance. “Facing cancer is not something we want anyone to do alone,” said Event Leader Bev Keller. “I’ve been down that road and couldn’t imagine doing it without the help and support of my family, friends and the community. That is why, as a Relay, we are looking for survivors. We want to help support them in whatever phase of the disease they are facing. We want to celebrate them. We want to support them. We want to help them fight back.” Inviting survivors to share a meal together is just one way to show support. Keller shared that members of the Event Leadership Team and a cast of volunteers are eager to meet those in the community who are facing cancer or have beat cancer. “This is about the survivors,” she said. “If we can help them forget for a few hours or enjoy something new, then I think we are doing our job as human beings.” COSHOCTON COUNTY At this year’s event, set for Saturday, June 17 at Ga- raway’s Burke Wentz Field in Sugarcreek, survivors will lead the way when they make the first lap around the track at 10 a.m. Following the lap, a brunch will be held inside the Garaway Belden Community Center at 10:30 a.m. with a special reception later in the day from 6 - 8 p.m. The heartfelt luminaria ceremony is held at 9 p.m. (dusk). This year’s theme is board games with the phrase: “Life May Be a Twister, But Sorry Cancer, We’re In It To Win It” and will feature whimsical games at each team’s camp around the track from Candyland to Hungry Hungry Hippos. “It’s not too late to get involved in any part of Relay For Life of Tuscarawas County,” Keller said. “We want everyone in the county to be involved and help us raise funds for a cure, awareness of the cause and hope for the future. And right now we are searching for survivors. Sign up with us, let us honor you and become a part of Relay For Life of Tuscarawas County.” To get signed up for the luncheon or any other part of Relay For Life of Tuscarawas County, contact Keller at 330-260-1248 or email Check them out on Facebook - Relay For Life of Tuscarawas County or at Contributed | Beacon KNOB VIEW BICYCLE S A L E S , S E R V I C E & R E PA I R S IS GOING MOBILE!
