Dare to dream at Relay for Life

Relay for Life photos include: Luminaries light the way along the Relay for Life track June 14; cancer survivors and caregivers walk the victory lap; three-year-old Rylee Nunn dances on-stage; Leif Saba participates in a 5 a.m. zumba session; Lizzie Harbaruk, a five-year-old survivor, lights up the track with her smile; survivors and their caregivers fill the stage at Elks Hall, headquarters for the 2014 event.

 

Despite being down 10 teams from last year, Salmon Arm’s Relay for Life raised in excess of $120,000, with more coming in. An exhausted but elated Jen Dies, Canadian Cancer Society co-ordinator of community giving, said she was shocked and amazed at the way the Shuswap community responds every year. Among the most touching aspects of the event for Dies was the large number of survivors and caregivers who showed up despite a torrential downpour.
