The opportunity to raise awareness for a disease that has touched so many is once again coming to Nelson Saturday, June 15 at Lakeside Park.

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is set to kick off at 10 a.m. for its 12-hour run.

“The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser,” said the release on the Canadian Cancer Website.

“It is an opportunity to get together with family and friends and celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost to cancer, and fight back in the hope of finding a cure for this terrible disease.

Relay is fun, fulfilling, and your participation gives strength to our mission to eradicate cancer. Walk with us in this inspirational 12 to 24 hour event as we come together and fight to make cancer history.

There will be laughter and fun, joy and sorrow but mostly, conviction that cancer can be kicked out of our lives and communities — if we act together.

Donations to Relay For Life make it possible for 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.

A personal fight against cancer takes courage.

A community’s fight takes commitment.
