In just 10 days, hundreds of Rupertites will take to the track in support of the fight against cancer.

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life takes place at the Prince Rupert Middle School field from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on May 24 and organizers are expecting another banner year for the event.

“Right now we have 29 teams and more than 200 people signed up, but we expect more to come … last year we had 26 teams and 223 people, but this year we have had some individuals sign up a team with other members signing up later so we expect to surpass the number of participants from last year,” said Sheila Seideman, one of Prince Rupert’s event organizers.

“Our goal this year is to raise $75,000 and we already have more than $17,000 pledged on the site. It is a great start since we still have two weeks to go.”
