The Relay for Life is a series of relay events put on by the Canadian Cancer Society across Canada. The relay event that Team Alex participated in was an overnight event, with the powerful and true motto, 'because cancer never sleeps.' The Team would take turns walking the track lit by luminaries placed in honor of those who have survived, been lost to, or are fighting against the disease. Team Alex participated in the Relay for Life for three years (2007-2009), during which period we were consecutively the top fundraiser, raising over $30,000. 

It’s amazing that a ten year old boy has touched so many people. Out of difficulty often comes amazing learning that shows the true strength of friendship and family.
