Relay for Life is this Friday at HHS

The Humboldt County Relay for Life is Friday, June 28 at the Humboldt High School track, beginning with pre-registration at 5:30 p.m. and opening ceremonies at 6 p.m. Kylee Myott (left) with husband Bob and daughter Hadley, and Renee Anliker (right) with daughter Megan, son Cain and husband Dan, will be the lead lap cancer survivor honorees.

The Humboldt County Relay for Life annually includes more people, as more individuals and families are impacted by cancer and feel the need to lend their physical, mental, emotional and financial support to combat this deadly disease.
The Relay for Life celebrates the success stories and revels in the shared experience of coming together for a life-saving cause.
This year’s activities will begin with the pre-registration of teams and survivors beginning at 5:30 p.m. MoJo Productions will be providing musical entertainment.
The opening celebration ceremony, prayer, presentation of colors and National Anthem will begin at 6 p.m.
The survivor ceremony and victory lap will begin at 6:15 p.m. at the Humboldt High School track at Mason Maach Field. It will be followed by the caregivers’ lap and then a lap by the teams participating.
“It is important to recognize the caregivers, as they play an important role in the care and recovery of cancer patients,” Amy Nostrom, member of the Humboldt County Relay for Life Committee, said.
There will be an auction of donated items to raise funds beginning at 6:30 p.m. That will be followed by sponsorship recognition.
Throughout the evening, in addition to walking laps around the track, there will be many fun events going on.
There will be some live vocal entertainment.
The Humboldt High School Interact Club and other high school students will be operating kids games on the infield. There will be a bouncy house and a dunk tank.
Special activities will include a frozen T-shirt contest, Relay Plinko wheel and Relay scavenger hunt.
The evening concludes after dark, around 9:30 p.m., when luminaries are lit around the track and names are read of loved ones impacted by cancer. The public is invited to attend this beneficial and heartwarming community event.
