he 2012 version of the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay For Life featured the largest-ever number of insurance industry participants. The Relay is a tribute to the lives of loved ones who have been touched by cancer. Teams of 10 people took part in the 12-hour, overnight, non-competitive relay, taking turns walking, running or strolling around a track. In Ontario, more than 1,000 friends and members of the insurance industry formed teams under the Team WICC banner in 13 different locations. Sixty-five teams raised more than $303,000 in pledges; sponsorships raised the total to $394,391. Relay For Life is now WICC Ontario’s largest fundraising activity.
The main WICC Ontario event was held for the 4th year running at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York on Friday, June 22, from 7pm to 7am.
