BENEFITING: The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada
EVENT DATE: Jan 27, 2017
About the event!
On January 27, 2017, The Children’s Wish Foundation will challenge local business and community groups to gather their crews and take part in an action-packed day of fun and friendly competition all in a united effort to grant heartfelt local wishes. Modeled after the popular television show “Survivor”, casts compete in a series of mental, physical, creative, and strategic challenges at West Edmonton Mall. Each year the event takes on a different theme so that casts can get as creative as possible with their cast costumes and themes. This year our theme is MOVIES and we hope this inspires each team to get creative with their fundraising events, and cast spirit. Each cast will be paired with a local Wish Child who will cheer them on and inspire these brave competitors to raise money towards granting their wish child’s most heartfelt wish!
