Celebrate Life
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

August 7, 2010: Light a Candle of Hope to Remember or Celebrate the Life of a Loved One Touched by Cancer. Whether you participate at Starlight MoorWalk in person or in spirit, dedicating a candle of hope offers the opportunity to pay tribute to those people whose lives have been directly affected by cancer. What is a Candle of Hope? It is simply a bag that contains sand and a glowing candle to light up your message. Many people write the names of loved ones on their bag whilst others add special messages, pictures or decoration in memory of someone they have lost, or in celebration of someone who is surviving cancer. The candles then burn into the night as a sign of Hope for Everyone Keep the fire of hope burning by dedicating a candle to someone you wish to remember or whose courage and life you wish to honour and celebrate by donating a minimum of 2 in the box. You have the option of taking a plain or pre decorated bag and returning it to Okehampton Rugby Club on the night of 8th October at 7pm for it to be lit up, or return to place of purchase and it will be collected on your behalf. The candles will be displayed around the rugby club field and will welcome back all our walkers.
