Sudbury Synchro Club will once again take to the Laurentian University pool for their annual Burning Bright Breast Cancer Campaign on Oct. 25.
The event will run from 6:30 - 8 p.m. and will include the candle relay, bake sale, theme baskets, merchandise sales of t-shirts and swim caps.
Sudbury Synchro swimmers will be knocking on doors respectfully asking our community for support in the weeks leading up to the event.
The club has raised more than $100,000 for breast cancer in the 15 years that they have been taking part in the Burning Bright Campaign, and the Sudbury swimmers are consistently among the top fundraisers in the province.
As always, this year’s Burning Bright event is dedicated in memory of Myra Gerow, a member of the SSSC family, who lost her battle with breast cancer in July 2011.
"We also swim in support of those people we know who have battled, are battling and who will battle this disease," said Sudbury Synchro on their website.
"Synchro Ontario has established an award to honour Myra’s unwavering support for this cause. The Myra Gerow Award is given to the top fundraising club in the province."
To date, this event has raised more than $550,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
