Rose Reisman is the Honorary Chair and Proud Supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society - Relay of Life.
Relay For Life - A celebration of survival, a tribute to the lives of lived ones and a night of entertainment and fundraising to beat cancer - is an inspiring event that involves teams of ten or more people who participate in an overnight non-competitive relay. Participants take turns walking, running or strolling around a track and form bonds and make new friends as they camp out on the surrounding grounds.
Food, entertainment, activities, contests and the victorious theme of survivorship make Relay For Life a memorable event for those who experience it. Taking part in this heart-warming event creates a strong community of people striving to beat cancer.
