A walking group aimed at helping the community get ready for the upcoming Relay for Life in White Rock will meet every Wednesday through June 20.

Those interested, whether they are participating in the June 22 relay or not, are invited to meet at the main entrance of the Centennial Park leisure centre weekly at 7 p.m. for the one-hour sessions organized by the Canadian Cancer Society.

According to society officials, research shows that regular physical activity boosts energy levels, helps protect against breast and colon cancer, benefits the heart and improves mood.

For more information on the walking group, email walkforhealthyliving2012@gmail.com or call 604-836-2938.

To sign up for the relay, visit www.relaybc.ca/whiterock2012 or call 604-533-0822.
