Amazing Chase fundraiser for Children's Hospital May 3 in memory of Lilee-Jean Putt

Submitted by Carolynn Putt, Chilliwack


n September of last year, Lilee-Jean Putt lost her battle to brain cancer, after fighting for nearly two years. In her memory and in her honour, we want to raise funds to go toward cancer research at BC Children's hospital, and hopefully help eradicate cancer for future generations.

Lilee loved to run and dance and to just be outside, no matter what the weather, and so we are organizing an Amazing Chase around Chilliwack rain or shine!

On May 3rd, teams of 2-4 people (or more if you are a family unit with small children) will race around downtown Chilliwack on foot, and then to various other locations by car, completing fun challenges along the way. Clues given en route will guide them to their next destinations, until they finish the race at a special location where they will be welcomed with a family-fun BBQ and party!

Even though there will be prizes for teams that finish first (as well as best costumes!), the race is supposed to be FUN. You don't need to be in shape, and you don't actually have to run :)

Registration is $30 per person, or $15 for children 12 and under and is due by April 26th.

If you wish, you may also ask people to sponsor you in this event, as a way of raising more money for the hospital. We will have special draws for those who raise extra money (for every $10 you raise, your name will go in to the draw, so the more you raise, the more chances you have to win!). This money will be collected at registration on the day of the event, and tax receipts can be given.
