Relay For Life Event to Feature Team Fastrax™ Performance

Saturday June 18th, 2016, the American Cancer Society will hold a Relay for Life event at the Berachah Church (Old Verity Middle School) in Middletown, OH.   The opening Ceremony will begin at noon, and Team Fastrax™, a world renowned skydiving team, will be performing their American Flag Skydive during the National Anthem.   The performance will include their amazing 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag.  

John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and member of Team Fastrax™, said, “We are thrilled to be performing at such an important event.  Cancer has claimed the lives of far too many.   We can’t wait to support and meet some of these brave cancer survivors.”

According to the Relay for Life website, the Opening Ceremony brings everyone together for a high-energy event kickoff that celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer and reminds us all that while we are winning this battle, fighting cancer is a year-round priority.  Cancer survivors take the first lap around the track. Cheered on by the other participants and the sound of upbeat music, the Survivors’ Lap allows all cancer survivors at the event to celebrate their victory over cancer.  The Survivor Brunch will be held immediately before the opening ceremony the Monroe Methodist Church.  The event will also include a candlelight Luminaria Ceremony to remember loved ones lost to cancer, support people who currently have cancer, and honor people who fought cancer in the past.  It's a powerful part of the event because it provides an opportunity for people to work through grief and find hope. The luminaria ceremony will begin at dusk.

Team Fastrax™ is sponsored by SELECTiON.COM®, a leading provider of criminal background checks and pre-employment screening services.   Team Fastrax™ is the most ambitious professional skydiving team in the world.   The parachute demonstration team has a roster of more than twenty-nine active members, with a collective of more than 300,000 skydives.  Team Fastrax™ has performed exhibition skydives all over the world for audiences large and small as a patriotic display or as a product promotion.
