Toque it to Cancer: Burnaby 8 Rinks, January 16th

Skating Has Never Felt More Refreshing and Satisfying to the Core

Skate to Fight Cancer with Toque it to Cancer, a brand new event, hosted by the Canadian Cancer Society on January 16th, 2016 at Burnaby 8 Rinks on 1:30 PM.

Don’t miss the early bird registration deadline on December 1st, 2015! Before the registration fees increase.

Participants who fundraise over $150 will receive a warm and cool Canadian Cancer Society Toque as well as the overall satisfaction of knowing they did something amazing!

Gather your friends, family and co-workers now, to create a team and raise awareness and funds for cancer research and support programs. With the funds from fundraising, the Canadian Cancer Society can continue to provide lodges for cancer patients away from home.

The event is open to anyone who wants to take a stand in the fight against cancer. The event itself is a 5km “Skate-a-thon” where participants and teams skate to fight against cancer. This is a family friendly event that is not to be missed! There will be hot chocolates provided to participants for the event.
