Registration is now open for Waterloo-Oxford’s 6th Relay for Life on June 3-4, 2016.   Relay for Life is to honour the lives of all of those affected by cancer. Mine, Yours, and Our community’s. On June 3 and 4 teams of 7-15 people will take turns walking for 12 hours to honour those who have beaten the disease, those who are suffering from the disease, and those who have lost there battle. We will walk to raise funds for cancer research to hopefully one day beat the disease that affects so many people in our community. We’ll have a great time doing it, while staying up all night.  Register online and then bring in the registration form that will be emailed to you along with the $25 registration fee to the Relay Reg booth at school.  We have raised over $100,000 at each of our last three events and are hoping to make this event our biggest one yet!
