It was fitting the Relay For Life launched their campaign for the 20th anniversary of the event here in Sudbury yesterday as it was World Cancer Day.

The relay is a global movement, active in 29 countries and over six thousand communities around the world.

Co-Chair of the Relay For Life Committee in Sudbury, Sonia Del Missier says they are seeing the impact the fundraising dollars have had over the 20 years.

It is one of the largest fundraisers for the Canadian Cancer Society but provides a place for survivors and family members to come together.

Dana Crispo was diagnosed with cancer when she was 23 and is now going on five years cancer free.

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life goes June 21st at Laurentian University with more information found at
