This summer, Nain will hold its own Relay For Life walk.
Relay for Life is part of the Canadian Cancer Society’s campaign to fight cancer.
It’s a way to celebrate cancer survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to cancer.
Annie Solomon, CYN Fieldworker started a Facebook group about the Relay for Life four days ago.
She says she heard from a friend about the walk and wanted to learn more about it.
A few nights ago, she saw the commercial and was inspired to start the Relay here.
She will be honoring her mother, along with other relatives who have passed away after battling with cancer.
First, a committee needs to be formed along with fundraising for the event.
The Relay will be the first of its kind for Nain.
Solomon hopes to have the Relay either in July or August.
