Submitted April 9 is the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day, a campaign that has created a movement that has been blooming across the province for the past three weeks. Kelowna is one city that joined the movement.
The Society is asking British Columbians to join the fight for life by wearing the new daffodil pin on April 9th to demonstrate their support to people on a cancer journey. There will be a local community celebration of Daffodil Day on April 9th, where the community and local dignitaries can show their support for those currently battling cancer.
We are inviting the media to attend this celebration, ask questions, take photos and help us show those in our community that they have our support in the fight against cancer. Interviews will be available throughout the celebration. WHEN: Friday April 9th, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
WHERE: The Delta Grand Hotel and Resort – 1310 Water Street, Kelowna, BC
WHO: Canadian Cancer Society volunteers and staff, Ryan Watters, CHBC personality Mike Roberts, Kelowna City Councillor Kevin Craig, MLA Norm Letnick, and others.
WHAT: unveiling of the “Field of Hope” wall, giving dignitaries and the community a chance to show their support for others fighting cancer, and send their message of hope. Everyone will be wearing the Canadian Cancer Society’s “badge of courage” – the new daffodil pin, to further show their support. (see attached for background information)
WHY: To show those in our community who are going through a cancer journey that they are not alone. This is also a chance to celebrate Kelowna’s community spirit and determination that they are strong in the fight against cancer.Friday, April 9th Canadian Cancer Society's daffodil day
