Relay for Life - Support Annie

The Travel Group's Annie, will be  walking in the Relay For Life, North Shore, as she does every year.

A cancer survivor herself and cancer free since 1993. Annie has participated in this event for 10 years, as part of the North Lonsdale United Church Team.

All day there are bands playing as teams walk the track. There are different themed laps. 3 legged lap, a walk backwards, hop on one foot, & wearing a funny hat, just to name a few.

The last lap is very moving. The luminaries are lit which line the track. These are paper bags filled with sand, and a tea lights.  On the bag is written "in memory", "in support" or "in honour" of a person affected by cancer. At dusk, everyone walks around the track in silence holding a lit candle.

Annie relays in memory of friends that have lost their battle with cancer, too many and way too young.  Support Annie by helping her reach her fundraising goal.
