2016 was the Final year for Relay for Life in Campbell River put on by the Canadian Cancer Society and numerous volunteers, participants and sponsors.  Campbell River raised over $30,000 this year which is absolutely incredible.  Over the 14 years it has been taking place in Campbell River; a stunning 1.9 Million dollars has been raised!

I have been taking part in the Relay for 5 years and this year was just as great!  I have had a team of family, friends and co-workers throughout my time with Relay and this year was no exception.  A team of 21 people made for the biggest team I've had yet and it was a pleasure to have old and new co-workers, family, friends, and people I just met all on the team!  My niece and nephew not only took part but also recruited some of their friends as well!  Amazing to see the kids getting involved, running bottle drives and fundraising door to door for such a great cause.

I have seen and felt the affects of cancer within my family and it is such a difficult fight.  I am seeing more and more people live through cancer and I hope that the money Campbell River has raised through Relay for Life will impact people locally and throughout Canada in respect to support and research.
