LDHSS Relay For Life January 22nd 2021
Posted on 01/14/2021
Dear parents of Longfields,

On behalf of the grade 12 Relay for Life committee here at Longfields, I would like to say a few things...

First off, I will briefly explain what Relay for Life is. This is an event that will be running in the form of a google meet on January 22nd, 2021 from 7pm-9pm. It will be filled with teachers and peers, friends and family, and anyone who is wanting to participate.

For those of you who don't know, Relay is normally an event that takes place in November of every school year and takes place in the gymnasium which goes on for half the day (approximately 12pm-10pm). With the global pandemic this is obviously impossible and this is why we have changed it to a fun and interactive google meet.

Relay for Life has been at our school for 8 years now and we have been one of the best schools in the city in fundraising money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

We have been beyond struggling over the past month or so regarding our numbers of donations and participants. Our goal is $10,000 and 100 participants. Sadly, we are short of $2,000 and shy of 40 people.

We understand the students' concerns about this event as this is completely new to us all, but we are sure this event will be their highlight of our current quadmester!! Mr Stone's performance alone is worth seeing!

The registration fee for the event along with a T-shirt and luminary bag is only $15. Once this donation is entered, your child will be registered and they may start fundraising to help our goal!

Once registered, your child will all of a sudden be entered in a bunch of raffles with great prizes from Ottawa's very own shops.

Below, I will share with you a link to register/donate to our event which will fully simplify the process.

Lastly, I would like to thank you for your time and please allow for your children to read this as well...

Here are a few words from our Vice Principal, Mr. Anderson...




Thanks again,

Relay for Life.
