Numerous teams circled the track at last year's Langley Relay for Life.

Travel prize linked to Langley Relay

Langley’s Relay is offering a trip to one lucky team member.

The Langley Relay for Life is switching things up this year – and it’s giving people signing up before the end of the month a chance to win a free trip for four.

Pacific Coastal Airlines is offering the free round trip, which will go to one of the teams that signs up before the end of February.

The contest is one of the first changes coming for this year’s Canadian Cancer Society fundraising event.

The former 12-hour, overnight event is now a six-hour evening event, as Relays for Life across Canada change their formats.

This year’s Langley Relay for Life will be held on Friday, June 3, at the McLeod Athletic Park.

From 6 p.m. to midnight, teams will relay stroll, jog, or run around the track as part of their commitment to raising money to fight cancer.

Most of the familiar events of the Langley Relay will remain in the new format, including the luminary ceremony to remember loved ones lost to cancer.

The entertainment and games schedule will remain, with more events taking place over the shorter time span.

“Our theme is sports,” said organizer Jen Schroeder of the Cancer Society.

To enter the contest for the free trip, simply sign up a team before the end of February. Team sign up and more Relay for Life information can be found at relayforlife.ca/langley.
