The La Mirada Relay for Life / Classic Car Exhibit & Parade will be held on May 16 through 17 at Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center. Relay for Life is a 24-hour community gathering designed to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and raise funds for cancer research, services and advocacy.
The day begins on May 16 at 9:00 a.m. with a “Survivors Lap” during which cancer survivors are honored. The following lap the Survivors are joined by their family and caregivers. Fun activities will be held throughout the event including riding down the Splash! Buccaneer Bay waterslides on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. and the cost is $5 per person, or free to 2015 Buccaneer Bay season pass holders. The day is intended to be spent as a community with games, a classic car exhibit, festivities and food trucks.
At 9:00 p.m. Luminarias are placed around the track for those being honored for surviving, those who are currently fighting cancer and those who are being memorialized.
The event closes on May 17 with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Kiwanis Club followed by a “Fight Back Ceremony” where the community and individuals pledge to work to eradicate cancer.
