Or maybe it will help teach a woman who lost her breasts to cancer how to feel confident and lovely again. When I first got diagnosed, the first doctor I saw told me that I wouldn't live to see 2018.

"The students make this event a personal mission to help eradicate cancer", said Colleen Pochyly, a Marist campus minister who co-moderated the event. All walkers attending the relay paid $20 to participate as part of their ten-person teams.

There is a $5 fee for registration, which begins at 5 p.m. on the east side of the courthouse square.

The evening's Luminaria Remembrance ceremony will start at 8 p.m.

Before the survivors' lap, Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd and event organiser Janet Geering will welcome everyone to the event and thank all the participants for giving up their time to help the charity.

Among the survivors on hand was Steve Clark, who was Leeds-Grenville's MPP until the start of the current provincial election campaign, and is now seeking re-election to the newly-named riding of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes. "And I know too many more people who have been touched by cancer". "Students participate in Relay because it is a way for us as high school students to become heroes and positively affect our world".
