On Saturday May 27th, a huge fundraising event for cancer will be taking place in Dawson Creek called Relay for Life. For the past 3 years a group of friends in Tumbler Ridge have taken part in this worthwhile event.
Instead of having our relay team, called the ?T.R. Wolverines? run or walk around the track in Dawson Creek, we do a relay run from Tumbler Ridge all the way to Dawson Creek.
It has been a huge success, with the team members raising over $2500 for cancer research, and completing the continuous run between Tumbler Ridge and Dawson Creek. This year will be a repeat performance of this relay run/walk along the highway. There are some new members to the team, and we are all excited about raising money for this worthy cause.
The first runner will leave Tumbler Ridge at 6:00 AM, and the plan is to have our last member arrive in Dawson Creek between 6 and 7 PM. If you happen to be passing by us on the highway on May 27,t please feel free to honk in support, or even stop and offer a drink of water!
