Candle Relay

**Candle Relay has been POSTPONED until July 28, 2018.

Candle Relay

Be a part of history and your community at the same time.

What’s a candle relay you ask? Well it’s NOT a running event… or a track meet… It’s an attempt to break a Guinness World Record for the most number of candles lit in succession that remain lit until the record is broken. Participants sit or stand in an organized line with an unlit candle and wait for the flame to reach them; after lighting their candle they light the next and so on. The current record is 366 candles lit.

This fund and friend-raiser event does not have a registration fee. Instead, we ask that you obtain sponsors who financially support your participation. Any donation amount is welcome and is completely optional to participate. Get your friends and family involved, too. You can form teams and participate together!

Join Community Homeworks in the campaign to assist low income homeowners in Kalamazoo County. This fun, family friendly event will give the gift of heat and hot water to our low-income neighbors and families in need.


** It is with disappointment that we need to share that our Candle Relay event is being postponed until July 28, 2018 .  The decision was made after attempting to work through technical issues surrounding evidence gathering and setting the Guinness World Record.  We feel it is best to postpone Candle Relay to ensure we can meet the Guinness requirements so that the substantial investment in the attempt can result in an official world record. However, we encourage you to continue to register below to stay tuned to Candle Relay updates. Thank you for your time and patience.
