If you had the ability to create a world with more birthdays, would you do it? On Friday, May 11th, 2018, from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm, a Relay for Life event will be held at Bear Creek Secondary School to support the fight for a cancer-free world.
Relay for Life is a party with a purpose, that will bring our community together to honor individuals who have fought bravely against the merciless disease of cancer. Survivors, their families and all those who have been affected by this disease come together to walk, run and camp out around a track to create a united network of support and dedication.
This year, Bear Creek is challenging ourselves to raise $50 000 towards the Canadian Cancer Society. With an anticipated 300 participants, volunteers and interested neighbors to support the cause, the amount of community involvement is powerful.
At this fundraiser, high school students form relay teams to fund raise and take turns walking or running around their school’s track, passing the baton to teammates to achieve personal or team distance goals, and connect with others in this emotionally inspiring event. The amazing event includes live music, a talent show, fun games such as Frozen T-shirt, leg waxing, team challenges, sports and other activities to keep fellow students engaged and active throughout the event.
