STRATFORD, Conn. -- Relay For Life of Stratford will hold its first annual Luminaria Bash on Thursday, March 3.

Attendees can purchase and decorate a luminaria bag for $5, in honor or in memory of someone. Anyone who wants a luminaria to be placed around the track at the Relay For Life event, set for June 18-19, at Bunnell High School, is encouraged to attend.

Participants may bring a picture to glue onto the bag, but there is no guarantee it will be returned. There also will be a team available to help participants decorate the bags.

The Relay For Life program is a community-based event where teams and individuals set up campsites at a school, park or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team has at least one participant on the track at all times. Cancer survivors and caregivers take a celebratory first lap to start each event.

Last year, 248 people participated in Stratford and raised more than $55,000 -- all to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to finish the fight against cancer once and for all.

The event will run from 6:30-8 p.m., in the Wooster Middle School cafeteria, 150 Lincoln St. For more information visit the the group's Facebook page or website, or call 1-800-227-2345.
