Relay for Life 2018

The Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life event in Milton this year will be held on Friday June 8th, 2018!  It will be at the same venue as previous years: Country Hertiage Park.  And yes, MiltonBackDoc will be there again!

As in other years, we will be there to offer support to the participants and volunteers including an on-site chair massage as well as water, and a draw to win a complimentary massage!

Relay For Life is an annual fundraising event that is held all over the Canada, in hundreds of cities and it is the Canadian Cancer Society's largest and most important fundraising event.

Relay For Life is a festival-like fundraising event where team members take turns walking around a track or designated path. Each team taking part usually has at least one member on the track throughout the event to symbolize the ongoing fight against cancer. There are always many fun activities and entertainment for those taking a break from walking. Or they can simply relax at their team’s campsite.

The first Relay For Life event in Canada was held in 1999 and raised $85,000. It has come a long way since then.  In 2016, 438 Relay events took place across the country, raising over $28 million to advance cancer research and support Canadians living with cancer.

Since its inception, Relay For Life has raised over $500 million for the Canadian Cancer Society. These funds are used to support Canada’s most promising cancer research and vital support services for people with cancer and their families

If you haven't already signed up as a participant, there is still time!  Or you can choose to donate to the cause.  Check out Milton's Relay For Life website and further details here.

See you on June 8th!
