For those of you who were not at the Elk Valley Relay for Life last weekend, you missed an incredible event. Not only did this year’s organizers put on a great show, Mother Nature did too.
First up was the Victory Lap for cancer survivors and their caregivers. Most of them danced their way around the track with proud smiles on their faces. These brave survivors spread inspiration throughout the crowd and started the day off on a high note.
Then came the entertainment, which never stopped until nightfall. So many of Fernie’s amazing bands played for hours, there were dancers, a karaoke hour, head shaving and all day long, great tunes played in the background.
It felt more like a music festival with an amazing vibe. You couldn’t help but have a great time.
Now here’s the best part. The Elk Valley raised over $60,000 for cancer research. Everyone who was involved (teams, sponsors and volunteers), you should be very proud!
