Sunday, June 4, the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life in the Boundary will bring the community together to fight back.

We fight back to honour the memories of all those cancer has taken away from us and to protect our community and those we love.

Please partake in the Car Smash Fight Back Celebration!

For a $2 donation, you can smash a car generously donated by Jim at JD Towing.

The Relay for Life will be held at Perley Elementary in Grand Forks.

Also, the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life announces a silent auction for a Husqvarna sewing machine.

To place a bid before relay day, visit Yaki Jacqui’s on Market Avenue in Grand Forks. Bids may also be placed the day of relay.

The machine will go to the highest bidder, with proceeds going to support the Canadian Cancer Society’s mission to eradicate cancer and enhance the quality of life of people living with cancer.

Thank you to Sew & Surge, who donated the machine in memory of Darryl Thomas.

For information contact: Sarah Winton, event staff support at or 250-584-4104.
