Relay For Life Video Introduction

There is a wonderful opportunity to create a meaningful event in your community that celebrates those who have lived, are living, and moving past cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life event brings neighbors, friends, and community influencers together, united by the common goal of creating a world where no Canadian fears cancer. The experience of cheering on survivors, walking the track, and joining in a range of trackside activities at Relay For Life (RFL) creates an unforgettable evening!

Survivor Lead

As the Survivor Lead, you are creative, familiar with the challenges cancer survivors face, and comfortable initiating conversations.  You will connect with previous survivor participants and raise the profile of the event in your community so that those who have experienced cancer know that they are welcome to join in the survivor/caregiver reception and the survivor victory lap. Your insight and compassion will contribute to creating a warm amd welcoming environment for those who are processing their cancer journey

The committee will meet regularly over the course of the year, with increasing commitments as the event approaches. Each committee member will have their own portfolio but will share a passion for the mission: to provide the opportunity for those affected by cancer to come together and draw support while raising funds for critical, life-saving cancer research and programs.
