On Saturday, June 8, Castlegar will come together to celebrate, remember and fight back against cancer. Castlegar’s eighth annual Relay For Life will take place at the Pass Creek Fall Fair Grounds.

As cancer doesn’t sleep, neither will we: Castlegar’s Relay For Life is a 12-hour, overnight event (6 a.m. to 6 p.m.), full of live entertainment, group activities and inspiring ceremonies that aim to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and fight back against cancer as a community.

At Relay, teams take turns walking, running or rolling around the track while immersed in great fun – and you are invited to dress up if you like and set up and decorate your own team tent. All community members are invited to this exciting event!

To celebrate 75 years of the Canadian Cancer Society, the theme of Relay 2013 is decades; teams will dress up and decorate their tent from their chosen decade between the 1930s and 2013. There are a wide variety of flexible volunteer opportunities for the night of Relay.

If you are interested in volunteering or joining a team, you can register at www.relaybc.ca or contact Christina Postnikoff at 250-365-7074 for more details. You can also find further information and updates on the event’s Facebook page Castlegar Relay for Life 2013.

Supporting the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life as a participant, team or volunteer, means supporting the fight against cancer – supporting research for all types of cancer, cancer prevention initiatives, advocacy efforts and a range of practical and emotional support programs for people living with cancer and their families. I hope you will join us in Relay For Life.
