Keep fighting

Saturday, June 21, 2014   by: Donna Hopper

Hundreds of luminaries lined the track at Rocky DiPietro field as the annual Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser Relay for Life took place Friday night.

The yearly nationwide fundraiser for cancer research drew dozens of Sault teams for a 12-hour non-competative relay with activities, live music, and celebrations of hope and survival.

This year's top five local fundraising teams (so far) are:

  • Phil's Fans - $9,494
  • Lemon Aid Squeeze - $7,736
  • Today is for Tim - $7,445
  • Midnight Paradise - $6,991
  • CUREious Walkers - $5,057

Although the event has wrapped up, fundraising efforts will continue online until this coming fall.
