The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life in the Elk Valley is looking for entertainers to donate their time to a good cause! The CCS Relay For Life is an amazing day from the beginning survivor’s lap to the end luminary ceremony; the entertainment helps to make the day exceptional. Last year we had an excellent line up of entertainers and musicians. This year we are looking for choirs, bands, mime artists, drummers, face painters, jugglers, clowns, comedians, gymnasts, cloggers, singers, dancers, etc.

The CCS Relay For Life is now the premiere fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society in BC, raising over $74,000 in the Elk Valley in 2006. Teams consisting of friends and family, co-workers and community groups, come together in groups of 10-12 people, taking turns walking, running, or strolling around the track. We’ve heard dancing is fine too! Participants enjoy all day entertainment and at nightfall hundreds of luminary candles are lit around the track in a moving ceremony to honor cancer survivors, and loved ones lost to the disease. We are all working together in the fight against cancer, we hope you will join us.
If you would like be a part of this moving and inspirational day, please contact Lorraine Kneier at lkneier@shaw.ca, or Chantel Souliere at 423-0713, csouliere@bc.cancer.ca.
