Picture yourself walking a track while hundreds of people - family, friends, co-workers and neighbours - cheer you on. The baton you hold in your hand is a powerful symbol of your personal commitment to make an impact in the fight against cancer. As you complete your lap and pass the baton to a teammate, you feel an overwhelming sense of pride in knowing you’re united with Canadians in communities across the country to create a world where no one fears cancer.
What is Relay For Life?
Relay For Life is a community fundraising event where Canadians across the country join together in the fight against cancer. In 2014, nearly 400 Relays took place across Canada.
What happens at Relay?
Relay participants walk or run together around a track or path at a local school, park or fairground, passing a baton to their fellow participants and working together toward one common goal the fight against cancer.
At Relay you will:
· participate in meaningful ceremonies
· enjoy food, festivities and entertainment
· connect with cancer survivors
· learn about cancer prevention
Participants can also challenge themselves with a distance goal of 5 km, 10 km or more!
