Relay For Life 2017

Our school has decided to help in the battle against cancer by hosting a Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life event at our school.

Our event will take place on:  Thur. June 1 from 9 am- 9 pm (Friday is a PD Day)

Chaperones will be present all day and students will not be able to leave without parental permission in advance.

We are asking team captains to register their teams and set up an online profile on Wed. Apr. 26th at lunch and then team members Thur. Apr. 27th and thereafter (www.relayforlife.cajsacredheart). In addition to online fundraising, students may pick up an envelope and opt to collect pledges by cash/cheque. All pledges are due by Fri. May 19.

Relay For Life is a non-competitive overnight Relay in which teams of 10 participants raise a minimum of $100 each, dress up according to their chosen team theme and walk, run or stroll continuously around a track to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. These funds are used for research and support programs for people living with cancer. Relay For Life brings together students, teachers, family members and friends to celebrate  cancer survivors with a Survivors' Victory Lap and to honour  the memory of loved ones with a special Luminary Ceremony.

All participants  will be required  to pay a $20 registration fee which covers at-shirt, food, entertainment and a luminary and they must have their parent/guardian sign their Registration  Form. Very recently there have been a number of students and staff that have been directly affected by cancer, so we hope to have a great turn out to show our SHHS support and reach our goal of $35,000!

In fact we are hoping that you may want to get involved as well, as you are an important part of our school community.

Here are just some of the ways you can get involved:

  • pledge your son or daughter
  • sign up as a volunteer and help out the day of the event with set up, registration, security, food, entertainment, clean up
  • contact us if any cancer survivors in your family would like to join us for the event

Thank you for your time and please contact us if you would like to get involved or if  you have any questions. Sincerely,

The Relay For Life Committee
