The event began with an opening ceremony in which all participants gathered together.
Relay for Life Event Chair Patsy Bernier has a personal connection to Relay-her 28-year-old stepdaughter recently tested positive for the breast cancer susceptibility gene and underwent a double mastectomy just a few days prior to the event. The ceremony is followed by the survivor lap, a lap for all cancer survivors and people now being affected by cancer. "Everyone we know has been affected by cancer in some way Family members, loved ones". The walk continued until midnight.
