Written by 

The 13th annual Relay for Life in Swift Current raised over $60,000. Twenty teams with a total of 203 participants took part in the 12-hour long event at Riverside Park on June 7, which started with an honour lap by 90 survivors in bright yellow t-shirts. Swift Current resident Kathy Anderson was the survivor speaker during the opening ceremonies. A total of 965 luminaries were sold for the luminary ceremony later that evening. The ceremony started with a tribute by Arlene McKenzie, the facilitator of the Kinkin’ Cancer support group, for Les Borson, a group member who lost his battle against cancer. The other two speakers during the luminary ceremony were Ed Doyle and his daughter Eliza, who spoke about being caregivers.
