No doubt everyone has been affected by Cancer. Either you know someone who is currently battling this disease or have been touched by someone’s passing. We would like to honour those affected by joining St. Mary’s High School Relay for Life Fundraising campaign this year.
On June 7, 2021, St. Mary’s High School will be participating in Relay for Life in a COVID-friendly manner.
Relay for Life unites students to raise money for game-changing research into all cancers. Funds collected are used to help scientists make important progress, so people diagnosed with cancer can live longer than ever before.
When you donate to Relay for Life, you enable the Canadian Cancer Society to provide a national support system for people with cancer and their families. This includes helping people manage life with cancer with services such as accommodations at patient lodges, transportation to treatment, and so much more.
With nearly 1 in 2 Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, your contribution has never been more important.
Virtual Event and Video Release – June 7th
A video created by Dylan Schnurr and Kate Morrison (former Golden Stars and current students of St. Mary’s) will be shared on June 7th
