My Ascension Documentary

After the Q&A, Emma will be down at the football field for the remainder of the ceremony that begins at dusk. The memory wall slideshow will begin playing and the lighting of luminary bags will take place.


Additional INformation


Luminary bags can be purchased through the 5K registration for $5.00 each or on the day of the event (while supplies last).

The memory wall slideshow will play on repeat once started until the last person leaves. If you would like to add a loved one to the wall and/or slideshow, please fill out the memory wall form.

If you've never witnessed this type of ceremony before, you owe it to yourself to be there on Friday night. The turnout in the past years has been awesome and we've received tons of positive feedback!

Emma Benoit will be around for the duration of the event for meet & greets and will speak to the crowd at the conclusion of the 5k!
