Candles of Hope

One of the most important events of our Relay weekend is the Candles of Hope Ceremony. On the Saturday night, we line the trck at the LYIT with candle bags. These bags are pre bought and personalised with messages of rememberance and hope.

Just as the sun is setting, all the lights at the LYIT are switched off and the track is illuminted by thousands of candle bags. We have a ceremony with music, reflection and a speech or two. It’s an incredible moving and poignant ceremony and one that everyone looks forward to.

Teams carry letters to form the words Hope and Cure as well as our Celebrate, Remember and Fight Back signs.
