Rockin Out

Relay for Life 2010 Caitlin, Me and Charly!
What better then to combine dancing, friends, costumes (optional) and a great cause? That’s what we thought when we decided that for our group fundraiser this year we were going to hold the Rock Around the Clock Fundraiser dance for the Relay for Life in Maxville ON, in support of Cancer Research.
This will be my teams third year participating together in the Maxville Relay for Life. We are a team of family and friends that are already planning the next year as we walk tiredly to our cars after walking all night long. Are group in comprised of survivors, family members of survivors, people who have lost loved ones to cancer and those whose sole purpose is to raise money for a cause that affects so many people.
For those of you who don’t know of the Relay for Life, it is held all over in various venues for the purpose of raising money for cancer research. I participate in one located in Maxville ON every June. Teams fundraise all year for this night where we all get together and participate in a twelve hour walk. We walk from seven pm to seven am and get to dress up for team laps and participate in activities throughout the evening. It’s an emotional night with the survivor lap and luminaries (bags lit up with names in memory of loved ones or of cancer survivors) surrounding the track. It’s an amazing event that everyone should experience at least once.
So back to our party, we are holding our fundraiser event this year at the Maxville Sports Complex in Maxville, ON.  The theme “Rock around the clock” is hoping to inspire people to dress up (and win some prizes) as rockers from all genres and decades.  If you’re not the type to dress up, like my husband, still come out and have a great time.  We have a great DJ, a late lunch, tons of great prizes and items to bid on, 50/50 and a bar for those of you wishing to drink (please drink responsibly). Tickets are 10$ per person (kids 10 and under get in free) and can be purchased at the door.
We hope to see you at our great event this year, it is sure to be one to remember. If you can’t make it out but would still like to help out and make a difference click on the link below to be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society’s web site and donate to a great cause.
