We understand how critically important it is to contain coronavirus disease, or COVID-19. In order to
protect the well-being and safety of people living with cancer, event participants, our donors, volunteers and staff, the Canadian Cancer Society has made the difficult decision to suspend all in person Canadian Cancer Society fundraising efforts/events from today and through the month of April. As such, we encourage Relay For Life supporters to continue supporting the cause through online fundraising (we have various tools and resources that can support your efforts), or by visiting our website cancer.ca to discover other ways to make a difference.
We will continue to assess the situation and will provide updates on any changes for future events.
Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. That means half of our family and friends will hear the words “you have cancer” at some point in their lives. Join me in taking action to help create a world where no Canadian has to fear this disease.
I’m determined to make a difference by participating in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life. This is a nationwide event that brings people together to celebrate survivors, honour those we’ve lost and show that no one has to face cancer alone. By making a donation, you can help fund Canada’s most promising research, vital support services for patients and their families, and other important work that could change the future of cancer.
I hope you’ll show your support, and help me reach my fundraising goal.
