You can help light the route to a cure for cancer and honor loved ones who have battled the disease. During Squealin' For a Cure's 5K Glow Run/Walk, your luminary will help light the course that our runners and walkers will travel through the town of Kenansville. Lights of HOPE will be lit at nightfall to honor cancer survivors or in remembrance of those who have lost their battle with cancer. These lights will glow throughout the race event, serving as a reminder of the purpose for Relay for Life.

Luminary tags can be purchased for $5 each.
