This June 1st will mark the 4th annual Relay for Life and we can’t think of a better reason to visit Tremblant and stay up all night. The relay takes place in the Domain Saint-Bernard and consists of teams of 10 taking turns walking, running, or even dancing around a fixed route from 7:00pm until 7:00am. The first lap is undertaken by cancer survivors and is aptly named the Victory Lap.
The Relay for Life is a national event organized by, and with all proceeds going to, the Canadian Cancer Society. Last year Mont Tremblant’s event raised $213,059 and we’re really hoping to break that record this year. According to recent estimates, everyday almost 500 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer and 25% of them will end up losing the battle. Although cancer survival rates are rising we are a far way from winning the war.
At the time of writing this the Mont Tremblant event has raised around $65,000 which is a far cry from the $210,000 goal. So call your friends or your family and put another team together. If you’re not looking to participate do the next best thing and go and cheer the teams on. This event is a celebration of life and the atmosphere will be electric. On June 1, let’s get loud, show our support and let the world know that cancer will be beat!
If you can’t make the trip up to Tremblant, consider donating to one of the fantastic teams or purchasing a memorial luminary by going to the event page.
