Relay for Life ‘a triple threat’

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a triple threat among fundraisers

Dear Editor:

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a triple threat among fundraisers, because it brings communities together, lifts the spirits of all those involved, and raises more money for the fight against cancer than any other event.

Taking place in more than 30 communities throughout Alberta this year, Relay For Life is an inspiring event that gives participants and donors the opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, remember and honour loved ones lost to cancer, and fight back against the disease.

We’re inviting the community of Stettler to join the fight against cancer by walking with us in this non-competitive, overnight event. Fighting cancer is a team effort, so invite your friends, family and co-workers to create a team or join an existing team. You can also join the fight by simply making a donation.

Because of communities like Stettler, the Canadian Cancer Society continues to lead in the fight against cancer. Today, Canadians have a 60 per cent chance of surviving a cancer diagnosis, compared to just 25 per cent in the 1940s. We won’t rest until that survival rate is 100 per cent.

Money raised at Relay For Life supports our mission by helping to save, improve and enrich the lives of Canadians.

In addition to providing support to those living with cancer, we’re also funding the best cancer researchers who are working daily to find new and improved prevention and detection techniques, plus more effective treatment and recovery therapies.

Every step taken at Relay For Life is helping the Canadian Cancer Society save lives.

Walk with us as we fight to make cancer history.

Trish King
