Castlegar Relay for Life recap

Numbers down but effort present in annual cancer fundraiser

Spirit and atmosphere

Together, the 12 teams registered for Castlegar’s 2014 Relay for Life raised more than $19,000 in donations (according to the Canadian Cancer Society website).

The teams varied in size from a single person team up to 12 or so members.

The top fundraiser team was the Brite Starz with over $5,500 in donations raised. Top individual fundraiser went to Kelly McCreight, with approx $2,500 raised herself! There was a lot of live entertainment, lots of tears, and lots of laughter. This year’s event was by far not the best turnout I have seen in the last five years of participating. We hope to see many new teams sign up for next year’s event. Regardless, those who did take part in this amazing event had a blast, and made it a fabulous time anyway.
