The Canadian Cancer Society's Relay For Life

On Friday June 19th will be the Relay for life for the Canadian Cancer Society. It's the biggest fund raising event for cancer research, Worldwide!
Hundreds of these walks will be happening throughout the world in the coming month. People assemble teams and raise money to eventually partake in a 12 hour walk where team members relay themselves from 7pm till 7 am. Cancer doesn't sleep and this is our way to show our support to the survivors, to those who won the fight and those who cancer took away.

Everybody know's that Julie, my girlfriend, works for the Cnadian Cancer Society, so we put a team toghether, The Dobergang, And joined Gatineau's Relay. Alain, Fred, and I will be participating as well as our girlfriends and friends. We're stoked and can't wait to walk.

We just suck at raising money! So we need your help!

We are asking all of the dober-dudes and girls out there to help us raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society!

Raid your couch pillows, sell all those fizz bottles hiding in your shed, get rid of some disposable income, whatever it takes!
In your lifetime, 2 out of 3 people you know will have had cancer and half of those will die. Cancer is the number one cause of death in the entire world. We all need to do what it takes to fund research.

You can donate money online here or get in touch with the CCS.

If you're in the region and would like to help the dober-gang, you can give us a call at the shop @ 819-682-5948.

We're also going to have some cool suprises for you in the coming days... maybeeeeee some crazy deals for you guys with proceeds going to the CCS... hmmmm maybe!

-Cheers!

Most excellent cause, donation made. My wife had cancer twice and is in remission, a good friend is fighting hard but appears to be losing, and my wife's father lost his fight. I don't know many people not impacted by cancer in some way.
