Relay at Home raises $4.3 million for Canadian Cancer Society

GUELPH – The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay at Home was a success.

The event was the Canadian Cancer Society’s (CCS) first nationwide virtual community engagement event.

It also marked the first time the Relay for Life Community and Relay for Life Youth programs came together as one on a single day to produce results.

There were 4,200 participants who raised $4.38 million to support the Canadian Cancer Society.

“COVID-19 has changed many things at the CCS, but it has not changed our mission and it has not changed our drive and determination to support those living with cancer who need us now more than ever,” officials stated.

“We sincerely appreciate the support of community partners like the Wellington Advertiser as we find new ways to raise funds to support those on a cancer journey.”
