From 4-8 PM there will be an 'Awareness Fair" in the main tent. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the fight against cancer with the American Cancer Society Family Services, Cornell Cooperative Extension-Eat Smart NY and Hospice of Chenango County.

The day culminates with closing ceremonies at 11:30 PM which will include team and individual fundraising awards and a final total raised this year.  At midnight, it's the final Team lap, with candles provided.
