Relay For Life - June 2016

 

Relay For Life is a community fundraising event where Canadians across the country join together in the fight against cancer. In 2015, nearly 400 Relays took place across Canada.

 

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.

There will be mud…there will be pain…and you'll NEVER be the same. Can you handle it?
