The Rotary Raceway Park in Middleton will be buzzing on Friday, as people gather in support of the annual Relay For Life, the Canadian Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser.
Ashlyn Sulis, district coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society, says the committee is excited to see months of planning and hard work come together this Friday, on June 13.
“We currently have 32 teams and 256 participants registered,” she said. “To date, we have just over $22,000 committed online. Our teams are actively out fundraising and collecting donations.”
Over the past decade this local overnight event has raised more than $1 million for the Canadian Cancer Society. It’s not too late to get a team together, or for any individual to join.
