The 11th annual Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) Relay for Life, held at Centennial Park in Red Lake June 5-6, raised more than $60,000 this year. Thirteen teams, for a total of 120 people, walked through the night until sunrise. The funds raised go towards cancer research, influencing public policy, support programs for people with cancer and their caregivers, and advocacy.
