Relay for Life - Tomorrow - September 13th!!!

The Canadian Cancer Society, will hold it's Relay for Life in our community tomorrow, September 13th. It is an annual event that is held at various times right across Canada to honor cancer survivors, to remember those who have lost their battle with cancer and to bring awareness in finding a cure for cancer. It is a 12-hour overnight event that is held to "Celebrate", "Remember" and "Fight Back".

Tomorrow is an extra special Relay, as my husband will participate in the Survivors' Victory Lap!!! Watching these courageous individuals who walk in this event, will definitely inspire all of us and give strength to many. Check out your provincial site, for the date it will be held in your local area.

Please find the time to get out and support someone you may know who is participating in this event. Be there to show your support to cancer survivors as they walk the Victory Lap, sponsor a participant who walks the Relay event, buy a luminary to remember those who have lost their battle or volunteer your time for this very special event.

Each of us can contribute in own own way, to help make cancer history!
