Thanks to the community from the Relay for Life

Relay For Life is over for another Year!!

The 2012 Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life was held on Sunday June 10 from 10:00 am – 10:00 pm at Mtn View School Ball Field and a great day was had by all. It started off with introductions, then a message from Mayor Dave Raven, followed by Survivors Victory Lap and the Caregivers joining them leading into the teams 1st walker. We had a few drops of rain throughout the day but it certainly did not dampen the spirits of any of the 12 teams that participated, they had great team activities happening every hour lots of great prizes to giveaway and great food to eat, we had an interactive Cancer mission delivery, which was great to be able to learn a lot about all different types of cancer.

A huge Thank You to all the team captains and the participants for a job well done, the total of the day reflects as to how hard you all worked to raise money for the event. Thank You to the Revelstoke Elks for providing us with their DJ services all day, thank you to all the continued support from Times Review , E-Z Rock, Revelstoke Current for keeping the Community updated with all of the happenings for the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life throughout the year as well of coverage and stories leading up to the Relay event day.
