For the 22nd year, Reston is preparing to host its annual Relay for Life Fundraiser to fight cancer next week.
This year’s event will be held on May 18 at South Lakes High School (11400 South Lakes Drive). All proceeds raised from the event are donated to the American Cancer Society to support local community programs and research.
The event kicks off at noon with a luncheon for cancer survivors and caregivers. To RSVP, email Anna Ungar.
The opening ceremony starts at 2 p.m. by recognizing cancer survivors and organizers who helped this year’s relay season. The ceremony will be followed by a walk in honor of survivors and their caregivers. Other planned activities include zumba, a pie eating contest, a talent show, and a lip sync battle.
More information about the initiative is available online.
