Press Release

Doral Relays for a Cancer-Free Community

Doral, FL – On Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 2:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., the City of Doral will join forces with the American Cancer Society for the annual Relay for Life of Doral at its brand new location, Downtown Doral Park. This year’s theme is “Harvest for Hope”. Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature event – a celebration of hope and progress that will increase awareness regarding prevention, detection and services for those currently battling the disease while also raising much-needed funds.

The event kicks off with the Opening Ceremony and traditional Survivor Lap. Then the Relay teams walk the track throughout the day and fundraise at their team booths. A major highlight of the event is the Luminaria Ceremony, where participants take a sacred moment to remember, reflect, and rededicate their efforts to creating a cancer-free community. 

Another special feature this year is the donation of a commemorative trophy creation from renowned Doral resident and artist, Fernanda Frangetto. The trophy, which will be presented at the event, was inspired by the project logo, symbolizing the fight against cancer and capturing how art can be the light to ease someone’s struggles.

This year’s Community Champion is Councilwoman Claudia Mariaca. “It’s been a true honor to lead this year’s efforts for the Doral Relay for Life team,” said Councilwoman Mariaca. “While great strides have been made in fundraising for this important cause, we must remember that the fight isn’t over and we must continue working together as a community to raise awareness and support those struggling with this terrible disease.”
