La Mirada Relay for Life / Classic Car Exhibit & Parade

La Mirada Relay for Life / Classic Car Exhibit & Parade will be held on May16-17, at the La Mirada Splash! Aquatic Center

Relay for Life is a 24-hour community gathering designed to raise funds and awareness to combat cancer.
The day begins at 9:00 with a “Survivors Lap” during which cancer survivors are honored.

The following lap the Survivors are joined by their family and caregivers.

The day is spent as a community with games, classic car exhibit, festivities and food trucks, something for all ages.

At 9:00 PM the mood turns somber when Luminarias are placed around the track of those being honored for surviving,
those who are currently fighting cancer, and those who are being memorialized.

There are movies and entertainment throughout the night, with teams camping out at the facility.
The event closes with a pancake breakfast hosted by the Kiwanis Club followed by a “Fight Back Ceremony”
where the community and individuals pledge to work to eradicate cancer.
