Relay for Life: Prizes come to Langley Relayers

There are benefits to Relaying, beyond that warm fuzzy feeling.

The vast majority of those making the rounds during the Langley Relay for Life are there for the cause. They’ve either had a relative with cancer, they’ve survived or are in treatment for the disease, or they just want to support research for a cure.

However, the sponsors who help make the Relay possible every year have thrown in some prizes intended to make raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society a little bit more fun.

This year the Relay for Life is giving away both team and individual prizes.

For every so many hundred or thousand dollars collected, or for becoming the top fundraising team, names are thrown into the hat for prize draws.

Individual prizes

• Win an iPad – for every $100 raised, participants can have one entry into a draw to be held on July 2.

• Whistler Weekend Getaway for Two – For every $300 raised, participants get an entry for a July 2 random drawing

• Outdoor Lifestyle Package – Home Depot has donated this prize which will go to the top fundraiser on the night of the event.

Team prizes

• Earl’s Langley Chef’s Table For 10 – For every $1,000 raised by the team, there will be one entry added to the drawing for July 2.

• Pub Night for 15 – The top fundraising team as of the night of the event will win the prize.

• Joy TV Prize Pack – The local broadcaster will donate a prize to the team with the most team spirit, to be determined the night of the Relay.

• The Fight Back Feast – For every $350 a team raises, there will be one entry added to the draw, courtesy of the Seasonal

• Chef’s Table for six – Courtesy of the Cactus Club of Langley, the top decorated camp site at the event will win on the night of the Relay.
