The annual Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life returns to Abbotsford for 2015 on Saturday

The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life takes place in Abbotsford this Saturday, June 13.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Rotary Stadium.

The relay kicks off with a victory lap from cancer survivors and also includes a luminary ceremony to remember loved ones who have passed away from the disease.

The Relay for Life raises funds for cancer research and to support Canadians living with cancer.

Last year, nearly 400 relays took place across the country.

In B.C. and the Yukon, 10,500 people participated and raised $3.5 million.
