Do you enjoy spending time with your friends and having fun all the while supporting a good cause? If you do, come for a night of fun, friendship and fundraising at the first annual Relay for Life to be held at Rockmosa Community Centre in Rockwood. The event on Friday, Sept. 22 will be hosted by the East Wellington County branch of the Canadian Cancer Society and includes the Acton, Erin and Eramosa branches. Relay for Life is a 12-hour (7 p.m. to 7 a.m.), overnight, non-competitive event that involves teams of 10 people who take turns walking, running or strolling around a track. Teams consist of people representing corporations, communities, families and friends. The evening is kicked off with a Victory Lap, walked by cancer survivors and their caregivers. The ceremony honours not only survivors, but also those who have lost their battle to the disease. The evening continues with the Luminary Ceremony at 9:45 p.m., in which a candle is lit "In Honour" or "In Memory" of people who have had cancer touch their lives. For more information contact the local office at 1-519-824-4261 or go online at www.cancer.ca.
