THE 2011 edition of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life begins this morning in Terrace.

Volunteers are up early at the location, the track of Skeena Junior Secondary School, getting things ready.

The relay officially starts at 10 am with a survivors lap around the track and it officially ends at 10 pm with a luminary lap.

In between there will be music, announcements and presentations as teams walk the track raising money to fight cancer.

Teams set up tents and shelters around the track, providing rest areas during the day.

Also starting at 10 am and also at Skeena Junior Secondary School, this time in the gym, is the Early Years Family Fair.

The idea behind the fair is to promote healthy development during the early year of a child’s life and it is sponsored by the Terrace Make Children First Network. It ends at 2 pm.
