How we started

Fifteen years ago, our team of family and friends formed ' The Pegasauruses' to participate in the Relay For Life held in Coquitlam, BC which raises money for the Canadian Cancer Society. The team ran in honour of our friend, Peggy, who was just diagnosed with cancer. That's Peggy to the right !

 

In 2011 after the passing of North Delta’s Megan McNeil we decided to include Megan’s passion to bring awareness to childhood cancer into our teams “WHY” and hold Run for Life in Megan’s honour. www.willtosurvive.org Megan parents received emotional support and help from B.C.C.C.P.A. (BC Childhood Cancer Parents Association). Run for Life participants now have the choice of where they would like their entry fee to go; BCCCPA or The Canadian Cancer Society.

 

Pledges were raised through car washes, clothing drives, and BBQ's. As the years went by, our "WHY" became more meaningful as other team members' lives became affected by cancer. Peggy is our team's first cancer survivor. The team wanted a way to raise more money and thus the Run For Life was organized.

 

We are proud to be holding the 15th & Final Run For Life April 9, 2017.
