"The American Cancer Society focuses on research and without that research, we do not get new cures or treatments".

"It's great to be here and to see everyone participating, and to see how much we're all raising", said Isabelle.

"I've done Relay, probably since 2000, so I've been in it for a long time".

Becky Wellington has been involved with Sarnia's Relay for Life in various ways for more than a decade, but will experience a first at this year's event.

"We're proud to say that, to date (Monday, June 4), we have raised $56,000 in support of the American Cancer Society programs, information and services", Martin said.

Molly Jackson and Vicki Snyder lead off the survivors lap, followed by a caregiver lap.

Relay For Life of Upper Illinois Valley committee members, Linda Kofoid, left, and Nancy Jackson are gearing up for the 2018 Relay event, which will take place at Mendota High School on Saturday, July 14.

Nationally, there are 415 events with 110,000 participants who have collectively raised more than $500 million for the Canadian Cancer Society.

EA's Live Show might not be open to the public, but it's hosting a Player Fan Fest at the Hollywood Palladium on June 9-11. Hinting that players will be put in the shoes of a Sith, the game will be set while the Jedi are being hunted.

A year ago alone, the lodge has hosted 32 patients and guests from the county, whom stayed 218 nights total. Teams also will have fundraisers at their campsites.

The Prince George Relay has been the best in Canada the past four years, beating out Toronto's Downsview Park area in 2017. "That's why we have to make sure people know they aren't alone".

On June 8 starting at 4 p.m., the Relay for Life 2018 events will kick-off at Minot State University.

Another large fundraiser will be a Dad's Day 5K on Sunday, June 17 at Strouss Park in Mendota hosted by Relay For Life team "Breast Friends".

"I was exhausted, but I was also caring for my two young granddaughters and thought, 'Now I know why you don't have children when you are 46, '" she recalled. All the proceeds from fundraising monies go straight to the American Cancer Society to help those battling the disease. "If they haven't registered yet we would encourage them to register as a team, as a participant, as a survivor". "It's a time to just take a moment to reflect on how those people have impacted our own lives and how grateful we are for those people each and every day".

"If it wasn't for (the community), I don't think it would have been as easy for me", breast cancer survivor Jo Ellis said.

"(Survivors are) the reason why we plan this event", Zeller said. "They donated a $10,000 kitchen for us to raffle", Jackson said.
