I'm relaying in memory of my Dad who lost his battle with lung cancer at 65 and in memory of Aleksa McWhirter who passed away from DIPG at 15...both terrible and very premature losses.
I'm also relaying as a proud Dad of one of the event's organizers this year. Kenna and the "Sassy Nation" crew have been tirelessly supporting DIPG and cancer fundraising efforts throughout their high school careers. They have truly leaned into the event this year demonstrating great leadership and passion. I am so incredibly proud. Way to go Sassy Nation!
Following my daughter's lead, I’m more determined than ever to help change the future of this disease. My family and friends have been affected. And that makes it personal.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal. No matter how much you donate, every dollar goes a long way. A donation of $25, $50 or $100 could help ensure a team of researchers has the resources they need to make a life-changing discovery, or a patient has access to support services when they need it most.
We're so excited to have your school join the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life! Once you submit this form, we'll get in touch to provide you with more information about hosting Relay at your school.
