Hi, I'm Alex Cunningham with Off the Wire.
Last week I experienced the pleasure of being a part of the Cubs for Cancer events that took place in Owen Sound.
On Monday the 20th I saw more than 20 people get their head shaved or pony tails clipped with many others on hand supporting them.
I went to the Celebrity Serve at Boston Pizza and saw a large contingent of people supporting such a great cause and having a great time all while being served by their Owen Sound Attack.
On Saturday I attended the Cubs for Cancer game. The support that all the participants received was amazing.
Seeing the community come together to support such an amazing cause was a great feeling, I sat there through the jersey auction and was amazed. From the silent auction to the jersey auction and bucket pass, I saw what a generous community we live in by the amount they were all giving back.
Last week I witnessed a small community make a BIG difference, raising over $50,000 for youth cancer research and services- it was truly remarkable.
Great job to all the participants of the first ever Cubs for Cancer event and I am already excited for next year.
I'm Alex Cunningham, Thanks for listening.
