CC CHRONiCLES: CC & Friends @ Canadian Cancer Societies Relay For Life Event

Last night Creighton hosted Relay For Life, for Canadian Cancer Society. In their on going efforts to fight against all cancers, the Relay For Life is a very inspiring event that provides a lot of folks an opportunity to celebrate cancer survivors, honour loved ones who are no longer with us, and to come together in a battle against the devastating disease.

From as early as 5:30pm (September 7th) when the Cancer Crooners began with the Opening Ceremony, all the way till 5:55pm (September 8th) when teammates did their final lap around the field – there was a feeling of great commitment to raise funds and awareness of this cause.

It was a great honour to partake in this event, not only as a performer but as a community member myself.  I was personally touched by the various testimonies given through out the evening; it was very brave for each of those folks to get up in front of a crowd and share their stories; often told with great love and resiliency. For me, these testimonies were a highlight.

At 8pm I was accompanied by Stacy Hyndman and Dave Gunn for a short set of about 5 songs; as always I appreciate it when I have someone to play with and these talents put me at ease in front of a crowd.  Thank you Stacey and Dave for being there with me and for sharing your gifts.

Thank you as well for the folks who came out in support -  I was fortunate enough to catch local trio ImrieAnna Jones (accompanied by Kevin Imrie) as well as Doug and Ann perform for the devoted crowd.

Here’s to continuing the celebration, the remembrance and the fight against cancer.  Check out below for a few images from last nights event.
