New volunteers are needed to help the Canadian Cancer Society to continue to help those battling cancer.

The Elk Valley has hosted the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay For Life for 10 years. The event has consistently provided the community with an opportunity to come together and support those battling cancer, as well as to show support to people who have lost loved ones to the disease.

But it depends on the support of volunteers.

2012 marks the Renewal of Relay for Life. Many who have volunteered countless hours over the past 10 years would like to “pass the torch” and new volunteers are needed.

If you are interested in helping out in this year’s event, even if you just have a couple of hours to give, contact Betty-Ann Price, Coordinator of Community Giving for the Elk Valley Relay for Life at 250 489 8695 or
