#Why I Relay:
For me it all started in June of 2008, when a group of us from Jamieson Laboratories Ltd., joined together to participate in the Relay For Life on behalf of our co-worker Gary Charlton. Once I joined, I understood exactly how he felt, and how important it was to continue raising funds for Relay For Life each year.
This year, as all of us continue to make adjustments to our normal lives, on June 13, 2020, from 7 to 9 pm., Relay For Life participants from across Canada will come together to ‘Relay At Home.’ Together we will show our communities that no one has to face cancer alone.
We will wear our Relay For Life shirts to walk through our own neighbourhoods during the afternoon, and our team will be illuminating lights outside our homes at dusk, to remember the special people we have lost to cancer, celebrate the many survivors, and to support those who are now battling this terrible disease.
The number of cancer cases and deaths remain high in Canada, and although progress has been made, additional efforts are needed to improve existing programs, to advance research, prevention, screening, treatments, and address the cancer burden in Canada.
Please help by donating to Relay For Life, to provide hope to those with cancer, support the survivors in our communities, and to help make lasting changes for people across the country.
Thank you in advance for your support
