The Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life officially kicks off in Thompson tomorrow.
The kick-off event, which will be taking place at the Quality Inn and Suites between 12:00 and 2:00, will be an opportunity for people to meet the members of the Relay board and ask them questions.
Coral Bennett, the chair of the registration committee, told CHTM that if you can't make it out to the event, you can give her a call at (204) 679-2072 and she will be more than happy to pass on any information you require.
Bennett also said that Thompson has been more than generous in the past, with over $1,000,000 being raised through the Relay over the past 14 years going towards cancer research.
She also added that it's an important cause and every dollar counts, as every three minutes one Canadian is told they have cancer.
