MAXVILLE — On Friday, June 1, the Canadian Cancer Society hosted its 18th annual Relay For Life event in Maxville.
The event once again brought together colleagues, friends and families to remember those who’ve lost their battle to cancer and celebrate those who’ve beat the disease. The small community filled with big hearts made a strong commitment to fight back against this disease.
The numbers are in and they’ve certainly taken one huge step closer to one day finding a cure. This year’s total was a raked in a whopping just over $82,000! They will continue to be accepting donations for the next 10 days before we wrap up.
They truly wouldn’t have been able to achieve this milestone without all the fundraising efforts from their amazing teams of participants and volunteers. They would like to give a special shout out to their major event sponsors, including MacEwen, Chartwell, Dubuc Eye Care, YourTV Cogeco, and Boom & Fresh Radio who also played an integral role in helping them to achieve that number!
Cancer changes everything but we’ve shown that together we are stronger.
