2014 Relay For Life Ambassador Team The Blue Butterflies

2014 Relay For Life Ambassador Team
The Blue Butterflies

We will be participating in the Chaleur Relay For Life in Petit-Rocher, New Brunswick for a 6th year.  Our team includes a dedicated group of friends and family, whose age ranges between 26 and 78 years, with a common goal – to participate in this great event to raise funds for research and beat cancer. To date, we have raised more than $43,000 together.

The name of our team, The Blue Butterflies, was chosen as a tribute to a powerful movie with the same name. This movie is based on a true story of a little boy with cancer who goes in search of a rare blue butterfly which, according to legend, can cure his cancer. It is a film full of emotion and the name of our team is very significant for us. You can learn more about this wonderful story by visiting www.lepapillonbleu.net/le_film/le_film.htm.

Each of us has a family member or friend who has faced cancer so this cause is so close to each of our hearts. It is with great pride that we accept the role of Relay For Life Ambassador Team for 2014.

We are excited to share our experiences and fundraising successes with you. For example, in 2012 and 2013, we organized a fashion show that featured models who were all cancer survivors. It was an amazing experience for us as well as for the models. Our involvement in Relay allows us to live extraordinary moments!

Over the coming months, you’ll get to know some of our team members better through the Relay blog. We will keep you informed of our fundraising activities and events. It is our honour to have the opportunity to encourage more people to participate in Relay For Life. It is a great experience and so rewarding.

We look forward into talking to you again. Until next time!
