I am writing to thank the people of Williams Lake for their continued support of the Canadian Cancer Society, in particular for their support of the Eighth Annual Williams Lake Relay For Life held on June 2 – 3 at Boitanio Park. Thank you for sharing your strength and community spirit in support of cancer patients and their families.
A very special note of thanks goes to the volunteer Williams Lake Relay For Life Leadership committee and to all of the additional volunteers that contributed their time and energy during the weekend. Thank you also to the donors, sponsors, and participants whose contributions enable the Canadian Cancer Society to continue its mission to eradicate cancer and to enhance the quality of life of those people living with cancer.
33 cancer survivors completed their Victory Lap, 13 teams raised much-needed funds, 83 participants walked or ran a part of the 12 hours in Williams Lake.
This year, the Williams Lake Relay For Life has exceeded $36,000 in contributions to date, with pledges supporting cancer patients and their families in northern British Columbia through Canadian Cancer Society practical and peer support programs.
Your support ensures continued funding for Canadian Cancer Society lodges, information services, peer-to-peer ‘CancerConnection’ program, wigs and prostheses, and Camp Goodtimes for children with cancer and their families.
Thank you again for fighting back against cancer, a disease that touches two in five Canadians. Should you like more information or wish to make a donation, please call our local office at 250-392-3442, or our regional office at 1-800-811-5666.
Team lead, community giving,
