Relay For Life
June 20, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 11:00 pm
The annual Relay for Life event will be held in Kamloops on June 20, 2015 from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm at Hillside Stadium.
Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour fundraising event that brings the entire community together to celebrate life and fight cancer. Relay has a festival-like atmosphere that your family, friends and co-workers can enjoy regardless of age or fitness level!
Teams of 10-15 people fundraise individually and as a team to help the Canadian Cancer Society save lives and support those who are facing cancer. Relay participants make a commitment to raise at least $100 and are supported with the tools to reach their goals.
At Relay, teams gather with cancer survivors at their local track, stadium or sports field and take turns walking laps during the event. Each team keeps at least one member on the track at all times, while all around them the party is in full swing. Teams gather in the decorated tent city, united to enjoy music, food, activities and entertainment and to celebrate life.
