The 12th annual Grande Prairie Relay for Life is set for tomorrow night. This year, the event move indoors at the County Sportsplex. Canadian Cancer Society Revenue Development Co-ordinator Sandy Hunter says the move provides some immediate benefits.
“Anyone who has been a participant for a while knows that last year it was really wet and cold, and two years ago we actually had to cancel the event because of a lightning storm. So having it indoors this year is a nice new opportunity for us.”
Around 75 teams have registered so far, with organizers setting a goal to raise 425 thousand dollars. It all starts at 7 tomorrow night and wraps up around 7am Saturday morning.
