2020 Relay for Life: A Week of Hope

Because of the pandemic, the Relay for Life was held virtually this year, during the week of Sept. 14-20.  Events were planned each day.  The schedule of events was as follows:

Monday, 9/14 – opening ceremony

Wednesday, 9/16 – recognition celebration
Thursday, 9/17 – caregiver celebration
Friday,, 9/18 – fight back ceremony

Sunday, 9/20 – closing ceremony

These events could be viewed each evening from 7 to 9pm on the Relay’s website, www.relayforlife.org/colecomo or their Facebook page, @rflcolecomo

The highlight of the week was Saturday Sept. 19, when hundreds of luminaria were lit and displayed for people to view from 7 to 9 p.m. in the 100 and 200 blocks of East High Street in downtown Jefferson City.  At the same time, the video memorial ceremony where hundreds of names of family and friends who have lost their battle with cancer could be viewed on the Relay’s website and Facebook page. 

The other big part of the week was the online silent auction which ran from 7 p.m. on Monday, September 14 through 7 p.m. on Sunday, September 20.  The website for the auction was 32auctions.com/rflcolecomo.  Bidding on the items has closed, but you can still visit the site and view the items and the winning bids.
