Relay for Life

Thursday, May 4th from 2:00 to 9:00 pm

MD is excited to host a Relay for Life event this year to help raise funds for the battle against cancer.  Relay for Life is a non-competitive relay in which teams of 5-10 participants walk, run or stroll around a track to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society to support 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 loves ones with a special Luminary Ceremony.

Registration opens Monday April 3 in the front hall.  Registration can occur online; however, the forms and fee must be brought in to the Registration area.   All participants will be required to have their parent/guardian sign their form before they can participate.  Chaperones will be present all afternoon and evening and students will not be able to leave the event without advanced parent permission.  

We encourage our school community to get involved!  Here are some of the ways to help out:

Pledge your son or daughter
Join your son or daughter's team
Sign up as a volunteer and help out at the event (as a Chaperone) or help with Registration, or entertainment

Please reach out to Ms. Lilla Richardson if you would like to be involved with this event at MD   richardsonl@hdsb.ca
