Launch of Relay for Life
Yesterday at the CHUS, the Relay for Life event, the largest fundraising event
in the fight against cancer, was officially launched. The ‘Relay’
concept has spread around the world and inspired hundreds of millions of people to take part in the fight. Patricia Gauthier, the General Director of the CHUS, will be this year’s honorary
president of Relay for Life Sherbrooke. Seen in the photo at the launch are (l. to r.) Stephanie Labonté, president of the organizing committee; Josee Loignon, regional coordinator of the Canadian Cancer Society; Patricia Gauthier,
