Five More Event Theme Ideas for National Cancer Survivors Day 2015

Thursday, April 16, 2015

National Cancer Survivors Day® is right around the corner. We hope you’re already busy putting together a community-wide celebration to honor the cancer survivors in your city on June 7, 2015. But we want to know – Does your NCSD event have a theme?

Of course, you can put together an amazing Celebration of Life without giving it a theme. But planning your event around a central theme is a great way to create excitement about your celebration. An event theme also helps tie everything together.

Your event’s theme can be anything you want it to be. Need help brainstorming? Here are 5 creative event theme ideas to get you started.

Swinging Toward the Cure  Host a swing dance, complete with a local swing band and swing dancers. Provide some basic swing dance lessons, and then crank up the music so everyone can show off their new moves at your Survivors Day event.

massageA Day of Pampering  Let cancer survivors sit back and relax at a spa-themed Survivors Day event. You can hold your event at a local spa, or create a spa atmosphere at your cancer center.

Surviving into the Future  Set the stage with space age décor and futuristic music. Maybe even encourage cancer survivors to come dressed as their future selves. Keynote speakers can talk about cancer treatment advances and offer a glimpse into the future of cancer survivorship.

A Red Carpet Celebration  With this National Cancer Survivors Day® event theme, cancer survivors are the stars. Hold an awards banquet complete with a red carpet entrance, valet parking, and paparazzi on hand to take photos of NCSD guests. You can even encourage Survivors Day participants to dress up as their favorite celebrity.

disco girlI Will Survive  Cancer survivors can channel their inner Gloria Gaynor at this disco-themed NCSD event. Break out the disco ball, the bell-bottoms, and your best John Travolta moves for a fun celebration of life.

NCSD Health Fair  National Cancer Survivors Day® offers the perfect opportunity to educate your community on cancer prevention, cancer treatment, and cancer research, as well as the cancer survivorship issues that confront cancer survivors after treatment. Consider providing information booths on early detection, cancer treatment options, and support group and pain management resources.
