Illuminating the Relay for Life

Phoenix students (clockwise from back left) Hannah Blackmun, Natalie Sampson, Sasha Jacobs, Lana Rutherford and Lauryn Stover were among many Campbell River students who decorated luminaries to be purchased for use in Relay for Life on May 31. The candlelight luminary ceremony is held during the relay to honour those who have had cancer or to remember those who lost their battle with cancer. The names of those being honoured are printed on the luminary and placed around the track. - Alistair Taylor/The Mirror
