Get ready to Relay For Life Comox Valley! Join us on Saturday, June 9th starting at 6 pm at the Comox Valley Sports Centre track for a 12 hour, non-competitive relay. The theme this year is “When You Wish Upon a Cure” – Disney!
Bring together a team of your family, friends and/or co-workers at the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life and celebrate cancer survivors, honour those we’ve lost and commit to raising funds to fight all types of cancer and support those living with the disease.
For more than 75 years, the Canadian Cancer Society has led the fight against cancer and we’ve made incredible progress. Today, more than 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive compared to about 25 per cent in the 1940s.
Our work is not done. With Canada’s aging and growing population, cancer rates are expected to rise by 40 per cent by 2030. Sadly, this means more of our friends and family will hear the words “you have cancer.”
Whether you are cheering on survivors, walking the track, or joining in exciting trackside activities, Relay For Life is an unforgettable experience!
Cancer changes everything. So can you. It’s as easy as registering for Relay For Life at www.relayforlife.ca/comoxvalley.Cherie Kamenz
