There will be themed laps during the event such as Kid’s Lap where all the kids take the track, Purple Rain Lap – The power of purple! Purple!, Purple!, Purple! Wear everything purple, Selfie/Usie Lap – take selfies or usies with your smartphone and post on social media using the #loris/gsfrelayforlife #relayforlife, Superhero lap – WE all can be heroes in the fight against cancer. POW! Also bring your cowbells, whistles, kazoos for the Make Some Noise Lap or whatever you can do to show cancer we are here and we are coming for it!
