Early bird registration for teams or individuals ends Jan. 31.
“We are encouraging past participants, new participants, cancer survivors and anyone else in the community to get involved with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life,” said Diana Beglaw, International Relay For Life Hero of Hope and a pancreatic cancer survivor.
“You can sign up as an individual, a team captain or as a team member; everyone is welcome.”
Each participant who registers by Jan. 31 pays the reduced entrance fee of $10. The 2011 Kelowna Relay For Life takes place on June 4 and 5.
Teams of up to 15 people take turns walking around a track for 12 or more hours.
“Relay isn’t an athletic event,” said Beglaw.
“It’s a fun non-competitive and fulfilling experience that brings together family, friends, coworkers and communities.”
The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life is a unique opportunity for communities to come together and celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones and fight back against all cancers.
Each year more than 400 communities nationwide come together to fight back at Relay, supporting the largest cancer fundraiser in Canada. In British Columbia and the Yukon more than 50 communities participate.
Since 1998, Relay For Life has raised more than $51 million in the fight against cancer.
Last year in B.C. and the Yukon, the event raised more than $5 million for the Canadian Cancer Society.
