Honoring Our Survivors


Cancer survivors and loved ones we’ve lost to cancer are the focus of UNI’s Relay For Life. The Relay is a celebration of “HOPE” for a cure. We want the opportunity to honor as many survivors as possible at our 2012 Relay.

If you are a cancer survivor, we invite you to participate in our Relay For Life on April 13th. We will have a luminary ceremony followed by a Survivor Lap to honor our survivors. In addition to this, we have a Honorary Survivor who talks about their journey with cancer, and also represents those would have fought and are fighting cancer.

The night of Relay, we have a Luminaria Ceremony. During this ceremony, we remember those who have lost the fight against cancer and also honor those who are currently fighting cancer. Luminaria bags are available the night of Relay but can also be pre-ordered online on our Relay for Life website:

If you know any family, friends, or co-workers who are battling cancer or who have won the fight, please invite them to participate in our Relay with yourself. It is a great opportunity to honor them for their struggles and victories over a horrible disease. We recommend that you call all survivors you know to personally invite them to the Relay For Life of UNI.
