Cancer affects us all. Whether we have been diagnosed with it ourselves or have a
loved one with cancer, it is a tragedy that everyone in the world faces together in
hopes to conquer. Relay For Life is an event created to help battle cancer and show
everyone affected by cancer that they strong and not alone.

This yearly event is a run/walk marathon that also has many other activities. The
first event will be the Survivors’ Victory Lap. After this, the laps will continue and
each team is asked to have at least one member on the track while others can
explore the event and talk to other members of the community.

The event will be running on Friday June 21, 2019, 6pm-12am, located at 935
Ramsey Lake Rd. Sign up for Relay For Life in Sudbury 2019 on their website.

You can also visit that website to simply donate to the cause and help support the
Canadian Cancer Society.

Together we can be strong. Together we can honour those who live with cancer and
those who have lived through it. Sign up today to show your support.

If you are traveling to or within the Sudbury area for this event, allow Quality Inn
Sudbury to be your hotel accommodation. We make travel and rest easy and
convenient with our downtown location and selection of room choices and hotel
