The 14th annual Relay for Life will take place at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds on June 11, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Relay for Life is an annual fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. The 2015 relay took place in 331 communities across the country and raised $34 million.

Registration is open until the day of the event, but Canadian Cancer Society Annual Giving co-ordinator Jen Dies said participants are encouraged to register as soon as possible so they have time to fundraise.

The luminary ceremony will take place about 9:30 p.m. Participants may purchase and decorate a candle-lit luminary. Luminaries are $5 each and people are asked to bring a canned food item, to weight them down, which will later be donated to the Salvation Army.

“Relay For Life is like a blockbuster movie.  It will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will inspire and fill you with hope,” Dies said.
