Nets $210,000

Stanstead Journal - - SUDOKU -

The10th edi­tion of the Ma­gog Re­lay for Life, held at Merry Point last Fri­day night, raised more than $210,000 for the Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety. More than two hun­dred cancer sur­vivors launched this year’s event with the open­ing Sur­vivor’s Walk. In twelve hours, around six hun­dred and forty walk­ers took turns all night long walk­ing around the track which was il­lu­mi­nated by more than 6,400 lu­mi­nar­ies.

Amelie Gérin was happy to be this year’s hon­orary pres­i­dent. She en­cour­aged all those who took part, re­mind­ing them that the Re­lay for Life is a unique event and a re­mark­able op­por­tu­nity to de­mys­tify cancer and de­liver the mes­sage of hope for peo­ple af­fected by the disease.

This an­nual fundraiser is a cel­e­bra­tion of life with three aims: to cel­e­brate cancer sur­vivors; pay homage to loved ones af­fected by cancer; and to strug­gle to­gether with the hope of one day erad­i­cat­ing the ter­ri­ble disease.
