NEWS RELEASE
CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY
*************************
The Canadian Cancer Society invites the community to attend the 19th annual Relay For Life on June 7, 2019.

Join us at our new location – The Yard located at 107 Huron St.! Opening ceremonies start at 7 p.m. We invite all cancer survivors in our community to attend the Survivor Reception beginning at 5 p.m. and Survivor Victory Lap to follow at 7 p.m. Survivors register for free and receive a t-shirt.

Crimp your hair, pop your collar, and find your brightest neon outfit because this year’s theme is The 80s! There will be live entertainment, bonfires, karaoke, team challenges, and fun for the whole family!

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life brings together communities, united by the same goal of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. These events are also an opportunity to celebrate those who live and have lived in the face of cancer and those moving past cancer. We believe that life is bigger than cancer.

During our six-hour Relay For Life event, roughly 144 people will be diagnosed with cancer.

We are committed to improving the cancer experience by helping people with cancer live their lives more fully. Funds raised through Relay For Life are changing lives for the better. Thanks to the generosity of Canadians, CCS:

  • is the only national charitable funder of ground-breaking research into more than 100 types of cancer, giving us a valuable sightline on all aspects of the cancer landscape and allowing us to translate key learnings from one area to another 
  • offers programs and services that help people with cancer and their families when they’re unsure or anxious 
  • advocates to governments on important cancer-related issues to drive important social change and funding

To move research discoveries from the lab to people with cancer, CCS supports clinical trials at more than 80 hospitals and cancer centres across the country. This includes the Algoma District Cancer Program at Sault Area Hospital, where many people from our area are treated.          

Help us make a difference. Register or donate here. Register prior to April 1 over the phone or in person at 390 McNabb St., and only pay a $10 registration fee!

For general inquiries, sponsorship opportunities, or to register, please contact Alyssa Garofalo Lake at 705-253-4781 ext. 3723 or alyssa.lake@ontario.cancer.ca.
