Picture yourself walking a track while hundreds of people - family, friends, co-workers and neighbours - cheer you on. The baton you hold in your hand 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. What is Relay For Life? Relay For Life is a community fundraising event where Canadians across the country join together in the fight against cancer. In 2014, nearly 400 Relays took place across Canada. What happens at Relay? Relay participants walk or run together around a track or path at a local school, park or fairground, passing a baton to their fellow participants and working together toward one common goal the fight against cancer. At Relay you will: • participate in meaningful ceremonies • enjoy food, festivities and entertainment • connect with cancer survivors • learn about cancer prevention Participants can also challenge themselves with a distance goal of 5 km, 10 km or more!

In order to fully appreciate this rising star in the Sweet Adeline world, the following is an informative description of Rhythm of the Rockies. Rhythm Of The Rockies Chorus Ordinary Voices Making Extraordinary Music Rhythm of the Rockies is a championship chorus based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is a chorus of energetic, enthusiastic women, who sing 4-part a cappella harmony. These women come from all walks of life and professions and take their music, and ensuing fun, seriously. In November of 2013 the Chorus competed in the AA Harmony Classic International Competition in Honolulu, Hawaii, winning and achieving the highest score ever awarded in the history of the Harmony Classic competition. Members, whether musically trained or not, share a passion for singing. They are "ordinary voices making extraordinary music" taking a fresh and exciting approach to the a cappella singing of jazz, swing, modern classics, ballads and peppy uptunes. As the 2014 international mid-sized chorus champions, they have set high goals and achieved them. They have grown to over 60 members and always welcome new faces on the risers. Rhythm of the Rockies loves to perform! They produce their own shows and sing in public venues for a variety of clients. They also participate in regional and international competitions.
