Good Afternoon! I am working with my local Relay for Life, and I am one of the chair's for the Survivor events that will be taking place. I would encourage anyone to attend their local Relay for Life event. My family has been touched multiple times with cancer, and RFL has been a great way for us to Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back. During the relay we are doing a Surivor Lap (where all the survivor's that are present will walk a lap by themselves while everyone cheers them on) and we will be doing a caregiver lap (where the caregivers join the survivors to walk a lap). I am trying to put together songs for each of these laps, but I am having a hard time coming up with enough songs to fill the time that it will take to walk each lap. Does anyone have suggestions for either?

Anelkin....
What a wonderful gesture to have the 2 extra laps, and to include caregivers! I'm sure you'll be able to find plenty of songs for both groups to make their laps. Here are some songs off the top of my head (but I may think of more later):

Survivors Lap:
Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)
I Run For Life (Melissa Etheridge)
Chariots of Fire (Vangelis)
Beautiful Day (U2)
It's My Life (Bon Jovi)
Never Surrender (Cory Hart)
I Will Survive (Gloria Gainer)
I Can See Clearly Now (Johnny Nash)
Fighter (Cristina Aguillara)
Right Now (Van Halen)
We Are the Champions (Queen)

Caregivers Lap:
Wind Beneath My Wings (Bette Midler)
You Raise Me Up (Josh Groban)
Walking on Sunshine (Katrina and the Waves)
That's What Friends are For (Dionne Warwick)
You Get What You Give (New Radicals)
Don't Worry, Be Happy (Bobby McFerrin)
Stand (Rascal Flatts)

Just one more:

I Wont Let Go by Rscal Flatts - Caregivers son (I played this for my friend who recently lost her fight to breast cancer...) beautiful song, here is the part of the song...

You think your lost
But your not lost on your own
Your not alone
I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you’ve done all you can do
If you can’t cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I wont let go
