Darke County Relay For Life taking orders for Luminaria for this year’s event.

Orders are being taken for luminaria to be lit at this year’s Relay For Life event July 19-20th. The Luminarias may be purchased at the suggested donation of $10 each in memory of a cancer victim, in honor of a cancer survivor, or in support of someone currently battling cancer. Luminarias display the names of the cancer survivor, victim, or person currently battling cancer and are placed along the walking path. All luminaria are lit as the names are read aloud in a very moving ceremony on Friday evening. Lighting will begin sometime between 9 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. The luminaria are left burning all night long as participants walk the path.
This is a great way to honor or remember family and friends who have battled cancer, or are currently battling this terrible disease.
