REMINDER: Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - Vancouver Canucks mascot FIN joins cancer survivors at Daffodil Days kickoff

    VANCOUVER, March 12 /CNW/ - This Thursday, March 13 Vancouver Canucks
mascot FIN will join 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

    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.
