So Much Going On!

September 19, 2014

Hello GRC friends, families and followers, please watch and SHARE this 1 minute video clip of Elizabeth May speaking on behalf of all of us. Can I ask you all do something for me?….for the childhood cancer community? Please send the link to your MP’s and to your MPP’s as well, ask them to please get behind our campaign and help make change for children that have been touched by childhood cancer.
Thanks everyone! Steph

THANK YOU Elizabeth May!!

Tomorrow the CN Tower will be lighting in GOLD for Childhood Cancer Awareness for the fourth year in a row. We have been asked quite often about our event at HTO Park. As mentioned it will not take place this year. We like many will miss it but Gold Ribbon Campaign will be back next year!

Like last year, BC Place Stadium will light on the west coast on the same day as the Tower. Our friends at BC Gold Ribbon Campaign have worked hard and tirelessly this year and are putting on an incredible event for families in attendance! It all takes place at the Olympic Village and this is what the evening will look like if you are going to be there. If you won’t be there watch for pictures/videos on our site in the coming weeks.
