Luminarias honour every life touched by cancer. You can dedicate them to a loved one lost, someone currently battling, or anyone who’s overcome it. At Relay For Life events, you’ll see the Luminarias decorated with names and sometimes messages to the people they’re dedicated to.
After dark, Relay participants share an emotional moment when each Luminaria is lit in remembrance of a life touched by cancer. Together, we take a moment of silence to remember the loved ones they’re dedicated to. When you make a donation for a Luminaria it helps fund Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre’s mission, providing access to prevention programmes, early detection and radiation treatment for all.
We aim to host a drive thru luminaria display on May 14, to remember cancer survivors, we have lost and honour survivors still on their cancer journey, the caregivers and cancer support services.

- Buy a luminaria bag online and have volunteers decorate it for you
