Relay for Life

Relay of Life, the fundraiser to battle breast cancer, packs Heritage Park each spring. The event is always set up around Coan Lake. Events included entertainment, karaoke, a hula hoop contest, Zumba, relay tug of war, the Luminaria during the evening hours and tons of other activities.

“What sets Taylor apart from other events is that we've created a fun, energetic atmosphere, almost like a carnival or block party and every year it just gets better,” organizer Sue Shufeldt said. “We've grown from 11 teams that first year to consistently having 60-65 teams.”

Once a Taylor-based relay, the event has now expanded to have a more regional flavor.
