Memories of Relay for Life

0

About 400 participants took part in the 2016 Relay For Life, the signature fundraising event for the Canadian Cancer Society. Unfortunately with the hard economic times locally many local charities are finding their fundraising goals difficult to reach and this event is no different.  The 2016 event raised about $112,000 compared to the $220,000 reached last year.

The event nonetheless draws attention to Cancer research and celebrates the “survivors” and brings encouragement to those who are currently battling Cancer.

Watch the video for comments from team members and take a look at the photo gallery for more from Friday night.
