Relay For Life

The 10th annual Relay for Life was on Friday, September 7, 2012 at the Monahans Baseball Fields.  Carla Davis opened the ceremony at 6:30 PM.  Richard Barmore performed the invocation.  Rebekah sang the Star Spangle Banner.

Relay attendees circled the track and watched as survivors and their caregivers walked the first lap of the night.  At 9 PM, the Luminary Ceremony was performed.  During the Luminary Ceremony, participants walked in silence and carried multi-colored glow sticks.

There were 10 teams this year and 400 participants.  There was an increase in participating survivors this year.  The entire Relay for Life earned over $34,000.  Carla Davis said, "We had a really good turnout this year.  It was a wonderful night.  All night we had 50-60 people walking at a time."  The Relay for Life gave a special thanks to their sponsors, the MWPISD (for the use of the baseball fields), the City of Monahans (for blocking the road and cleaning up the trash) and Tim's Tire (for the use of tires as decorations).
