Norcross, Georgia – May 7, 2010 – LAN Systems, a leading Atlanta Computer Support company, partners with Print Green USA, Benevox and Freeland Painting to support the Toners for Life team. The Gwinnett Relay for Life event starts today at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds and gives everyone in the community a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer.
The Toners for Life team is participating in the Gwinnett Relay For Life to raise money in memory of those we know who have passed away from cancer and in honor of those who have survived cancer. All the money raised for this event goes directly to the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, the Gwinnett Relay for life will last through the night.
Although every Relay For Life is different, there are certain traditions at all Relays, no matter where they are held. These traditions help participants celebrate, remember, and fight back.
Celebrate – The Survivors Lap
Relay starts with a Survivors Lap an inspirational time when survivors are invited to circle the track together and help everyone celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer. The Survivors Lap is an emotional example of how Relay participants are creating a world with more birthdays like those of each individual on the track.
Remember – The Luminaria Ceremony
After dark, we honor people who have been touched by cancer and remember loved ones lost to the disease during the Luminaria Ceremony. Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, and participants often walk a lap in silence.
Fight Back – The Fight Back Ceremony
Last, there is a Fight Back Ceremony, where we make a personal commitment to save lives by taking up the fight against cancer.
“To those who have won the battle against cancer, we admire your strength. For those who have lost the good fight, we celebrate your memory.” said Mary Hester, LAN Systems CEO. “We each have a personal story and this is an opportunity to unite for a cure.”
