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.

Start a team or join an existing team. Over 18? Register as a Relay For Life team captain or team member before midnight on March 31 for a chance to win an iPad mini.

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.

Making healthy choices helps reduce cancer risk

Joy Sluser and son AJ

During March, which is Nutrition Awareness Month, and throughout the year, the Canadian Cancer Society encourages you to make healthy choices – eat better and be more active, for example – to help reduce your risk of cancer.

Meet Joy Sluser, who has coached Canadian Cancer Society volunteers and staff on how to incorporate physical activity and healthy choices into their work and events.

Volunteer your time for Daffodil Month

Daffodil Month - volunteer your time

Volunteers are urgently needed leading up to and during Daffodil Month this April.

We live in a province where volunteerism is so much a part of us that it is a way of life. Saskatchewan consistently ranks the highest among other provinces in volunteerism rates. No wonder. Our geography, climate and pioneering spirit have shaped how we approach volunteerism as a given – and a necessity.

Thank you to the volunteers who make Daffodil Days and Daffodil Month a success every year.

When you donate as little as 2 hours, you help make a difference for people living with cancer. If you have some time to spare, please consider:

  • coordinating daffodil flower sales in your workplace
  • selling daffodils at a public location
  • delivering and picking up flowers or pin boxes
  • packaging flowers or pin boxes
  • canvassing door to door in your neighbourhood

Let us know how you would like to volunteer your time this year.
