The Maidens of the Rainbow team began when Sara’s mom, Fran McGuckin, was in her final stages of cancer in February.
Sara read in the newspaper about Relay for Life, which gave her a way to fight cancer. By calling on friends, the team came together in no time and began their efforts.
Each of the team members has been affected one way or another by different cancers. At last weekend’s Relay for Life at the Vanier Track, they each wore a colour the represents the cancer that affected them — and that made up a rainbow. Fran always loved rainbows.
They send a heartfelt thanks to family, friends and co-workers who supported their efforts as well as supportive businesses Signature Wines, Courtenay Honda Motorsport, Reliable AutoBody and Comox Valley RV.
A big thanks to the Flying Canoe, Waverley, Whistle Stop and Griffin for allowing 50-50 draws.
Last but not least, a loud shout out to the Relay for Life committee for an awesome event.
