Media Advisory - Event: Vancouver Canucks mascot FIN partners with cancer survivors to celebrate and seek public support



    VANCOUVER, March 10 /CNW/ - Vancouver Canucks mascot FIN joins Canadian
Cancer Society volunteers at a roadside Daffodil Days blitz to thank consumers
for taking steps against cancer and to urge all B.C. residents to step up,
give and get involved.
    The Society's Daffodil Days tradition began after a group of volunteers
sold 2,400 daffodils on the streets of Toronto in 1958 and raised $1,200.

    
    WHAT:     Official kick-off to the Society's annual spring fundraising
              drive.
    WHERE:    Street level outside Surrey Central and Burrard Street SkyTrain
              locations and at the West Coast Express Station in Mission.
    WHEN:     Thursday, March 13, 2008 from 6:45 to 8:30 a.m.; photo
              opportunities with FIN between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. outside
              Burrard Street SkyTrain.
    WHO:      Cancer survivors and volunteers; Vancouver Canucks mascot FIN;
              Canadian Cancer Society spokesperson.
    WHY:      Community engagement is critical to improving cancer outcomes.
              Cancer is personal. We each play a role in the fight against
              cancer. B.C. and Yukon residents provide vital funds that aid
              cancer research, prevention, and support programs during the
              Society's spring fundraising drive, which includes Daffodil
              Days and the Door-to-Door canvass.
