Cancer never sleeps – and we won’t either’
Caped superheroes and Roman soldiers were among the army of fundraisers who turned out to take part in Relay for Life yesterday.
About 120 teams were expected to take part in the anticancer event, which was held for the sixth year in Bermuda. The opening lap was for people who had battled the illness and walkers carried a banner that read: “Survivors Celebrating Life.”
This year’s theme was “What Is Your Superpower?” which encouraged people taking part to get dressed up in masks and capes. A group wore costumes in the style of Romans with gold-coloured headgear.
Teams of up to 12 people participate in the 24-hour relay, which takes place at the North Field of the National Sports Centre and ends at 6.30pm today.
One of each team is always on the track to represent the idea that “cancer never sleeps, so for one night, we won’t either”.
A Fight Back ceremony is scheduled to take place this afternoon at the North Field of the National Sports Centre.
