The COVID-19 restrictions on large gatherings have reshaped the annual Relay for Life into a drive-through Luminaria Ceremony on July 25, 9-10:30 p.m., at the Olive Elementary School parking lot, 629 Plum St., Novato. Relay participants continue to raise funds and focus on the continued needs of cancer patients and their families. The public is invited to join the candlelit event in remembering the lives of people affected by cancer. To purchase luminaria, contact Sxxxxx Rugani at 415-246-6920 or Mxxxx Vespa at Relay for Life supports the American Cancer Society’s availability to help keep the 800-227-2345 number operating 24 hours per day to assist patients and families.  -Photos courtesy of Relay for Life of Marin
