This Father’s Day weekend in June will be the 10th annual Relay for Life in the Columbia Valley, and we want to make it the biggest and best to date.
This valley has continually amazed me by its generosity, and so now I am counting on it to help us make that happen.
If you have not registered yourself or your team yet, there is still time. You can pick up registration and donation forms at The Valley Echo or you can log on to www.relaybc.ca and do it online.
If you are not planning on participating, please sponsor someone, or go to the Relay for Life website and donate.
Or, you can come out and support us at our new Rally for Relay, being held on Saturday (June 2) at Cenotaph Park in downtown Invermere.
This event, which starts at 10 a.m., will prove to be a ton of fun and we are hoping to raise some serious money.
Registered Relay teams will be selling their treasures at our garage sale — there should be something for everyone. The ladies of the Kootenay Savings Credit Union will be hosting a barbecue and you can top that off with some wonderful baked goods from the Moonwalkers team.
Teams will be able to pick up their t-shirts that day and hand in all money they have collected to date.
Please join us for our Rally for Relay. We hope to see you there.
