Re­lay for life events be­gin

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Coat­i­cook held its annual Re­lay for Life event over the week­end, rais­ing more than $103,000 for the Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety. The wet weather didn’t stop a good crowd from both par­tic- ipat­ing and watch­ing the mov­ing event that has teams of walk­ers walk­ing around the track un­til the wee hours of the morn­ing, il­lu­mi­nated only by the lu­mi­nary bags, all bought in memory of some­one lost to cancer, that line the track. Twenty-eight teams of 280 walk­ers, along with 105 cancer sur­vivors, walked all night long.

The Mem­phrem­a­gog Re­lay for Life event will take place on June 15th at Merry Point in Ma­gog. There is still time to buy lu­mi­nar­ies from one of the many teams of walk­ers in the area.
