Skate for a Cure

I have decided to participate in the BC Children’s Hospital “Skate for a Cure” campaign.

Skate for a Cure is an exciting fundraising event that encourages kids of all ages to get involved in raising funds to find a cure for childhood cancer. []

The incentive here, aside from raising money for childhood cancer research, is that if you raise a minimum of $150 you get a crack at some fabulous rewards for Sunday January 20, 2008:

  • Open skate time on General Motors Place Ice
  • Official souvenir t-shirt and wristband
  • Complimentary food & beverage
  • Automatic entry into a draw for a signed Vancouver Canucks jersey
  • Access to the Canadian Tire Family Fun Zone
  • If you’d like to donate, visit my personal page OR if you’re a Vancouver blogger, I have created a team: Vancouver Bloggers. This means that if you want to sign up and collect pledges/donations yourself, our individual efforts will go towards a “team” goal.

    I think it would be fun to not only donate to this cause and raise some money for the research but also to make it an outing for Vancouver bloggers, should our team reach the our goal.

  • My personal donation page
  • Vancouver Blogger team page
  • More about the BC Children’s Hospital
  • More about the Michael Cuccione Foundation
  • Participants who raise $250 or more get all of the above PLUS the chance at a signed framed photo taken with a Vancouver Canuck Player (space is limited). Participants who reach the $150 and $250 levels will be notified by e-mail of their skate times in early January.

    If you just want to be a spectator on January 20th, you still have to sign up online. Now I just have to get my hands on some skates….
