I always knew that the Relay For Life was an important event and I usually went down to the annual relay to do a few laps and make a donation. But I didn’t really understand completely just how important this event and the Canadian Cancer Society really was until cancer impacted my family in a big way.
I have been involved with Relay For Life since I can remember. It was an accident, really, as some of my high school classmates in a leadership class formed a team. I initially signed up to support the school and my belief in leading a healthy lifestyle.
