Nelson Star issues Relay for Life challenge

The Nelson Star would like to see other teams join in this year’s Relay for Life with hopes of making a difference

The Nelson Star would like to see other teams join in this year’s Relay for Life with hopes of making a difference in the fight against cancer.

“We’ve already registered a team and we’re putting out a challenge for others to join us in this relay for life,” says Star publisher Karen Bennett.

The Relay will be held on June 15 at Lakeside Park and runs from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.

The event is both fun and fulfilling and participation helps raise funds dedicated to eradicate cancer. Donations go to the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in life saving cancer research, lead crucial cancer prevention initiatives and deliver caring practical and personal support to people living with cancer.

Celebrating survivors and remembering loved ones lost to the terrible disease are also an integral part of the inspirational event.

“Our team is enthusiastic to participate because we know it makes a difference in the fight against cancer,” says Bennett.

There are currently eight teams registered for the event and some teams are still accepting new members from the public. Individuals are also welcome to sign up.

For more information contact nelsonrelay@bc.cancer.ca or register online at www.relaybc.ca

A personal fight against cancer takes courage. A community’s fight takes commitment.
