Relay For Life

The baton you hold in your hand at Relay For Life is a powerful symbol of your personal commitment to make an impact in the fight against cancer.

As you complete your lap and pass the baton to a teammate, you feel an overwhelming sense of pride in knowing you're united with Canadians in communities across the country to create a world where no one fears cancer.

Every dollar raised, every kilometre clocked and every baton exchanged at Relay For Life makes an impact in the fight against cancer.

Ban all candy- and fruit-flavoured tobacco products

End the flavour

Cigars, cigarillos, water pipe and chew tobacco are widely available in fruit and candy flavours such as grape, cherry, mango, strawberry, ice cream and vanilla. These candy-flavoured products are designed to target youth and encourage youth smoking.

Help end the flavour before tobacco hooks a new generation.

Challenge your MLA to ban all candy- and fruit-flavoured tobacco products.

 Indoor tanning is out banner image

Protect our youth from dangers of indoor tanning

There is no safe way to get a tan. Indoor tanning increases your risk of the most serious type of skin cancer by 59% when used before the age of 35.

The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that the Saskatchewan government restrict youth under the age of 18 from using indoor tanning equipment.

You can help. Take action: Challenge your MLA to adopt a youth indoor tanning ban to protect our children from skin cancer.

April is Daffodil Month: Support people living with cancer

Daffodil Month - make a donation banner

The Canadian Cancer Society's annual Daffodil Month fundraising campaign raises vital funds for the fight against cancer during April.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps people facing cancer and their families by providing information and support services.

In addition to these services, which help so many people, donations fund life-saving research and other important work so that fewer Canadians will be touched by the disease.

Daffodil Month is also about remembering loved ones lost to cancer, it's a time to show people living with the disease that you care and it's a time to tell cancer that we will win the fight.

There are a number of ways you can show your support and make a difference in your own way in your community.

Buy and wear a daffodil pin

The daffodil pin is a symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer. Buy a daffodil pin and wear it in April to show people living with cancer that they are not alone.

You'll find daffodil pins at participating locations across Saskatchewan.
