Relay for Life events Saturday

by | May 13, 2021 | Featured

The annual Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, returns this year, but it will look a lot different. There will be no overnight gathering at the Hopkinton High School track. Instead, there is a series of events on Saturday, May 15, to raise awareness and donations in the battle against cancer.

The day will start with a workout class from 9-10 a.m. outside the Hopkinton Center for the Arts, run by BodyFit’s Torsten Grabbert. From 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. there will be a luminaria bag decorating party at the senior parking lot in front of HHS. An Uhlman’s ice cream truck will be on site as well.

From 2-4 p.m. there will be a kid-friendly, walking and socially distant scavenger hunt starting at Center School and going around the center of town.

The event will wrap up with the luminaria ceremony — “a socially distant opportunity to gather and honor those who have cancer and those we have lost,” according to event chairs Ashley Wojcik and Megan Murchie — from 7:30-9 p.m. at the HHS track.
