Norwell District Secondary School’s annual cancer fundraiser is less than a month away.
Relay for Life, the school’s annual event supporting the Canadian Cancer Society, is an overnight team event to raise funds for cancer research.
The event is a celebration of survival and a tribute to the lives of loved ones who have been touched with cancer.
The event is described as 12 hours of fun, friendship and fundraising to beat cancer. It starts at 7pm on June 4, and runs until 7am on June 5. The event marks the school’s sixth Relay for Life. Norwell has raised over $230,000.
This year’s goal is to involve as many school and community members as possible and to raise $50,000.
At the relay, teams of 10 or more participants can take turns walking around the track overnight, while a festive atmosphere is created with entertainment, camping out, and spot prizes.
Highlights include the Cancer Survivor’s Victory Lap and the Luminary Ceremony at dusk.
For more information or to participate or volunteer, call the school and speak with Betty Hoffele at 519-343-3107 extension 426.
