Hedley wants to inspire Youth to fight Cancer; band giving FREE school concert


Canadian Cancer Society partners with award-winning band Hedley to inspire youth to join fight against cancer 

Multi-platinum pop group Hedley is taking centre stage in the battle against cancer. The Juno award-winning musicians have come on board to become Relay For Life Youth Ambassadors for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario and encourage young people to get involved in the cause, one that touches everyone’s lives.

Hedley will challenge fans to organize Relay For Life Youth fundraising events in high schools and post-secondary schools across Ontario. Incentives include the chance to win tickets to the #HelloWorld 2016 tour and a private Hedley performance for one lucky school in the province.

“We couldn’t ask for better Relay For Life Youth Ambassadors. They connect directly to our audience and know firsthand why we all need to be part of the fight against cancer,” says Tonya Stewart, Relay For Life and Special Events Director for the Canadian Cancer Society in Ontario. ”In addition to raising money for research and vital cancer patient support services, our youth volunteers become leaders in making change happen.” 
Cancer affects people of all ages. Two in every five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. By 2030, the number of cancer cases will jump by 40 per cent, largely due to the aging population. Relay For Life Youth gives young people the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of everyone dealing with cancer, including family and friends.

“We are really excited to be aligned with such an amazing organization, “ says Tommy Mac, bass player for the band. “This is a very personal cause for me because I beat my own battle with cancer in 2011. We are honoured to have a part in this larger fight, and to be able to help people whose lives have been touched by this disease.”

Hedley announced their excitement for becoming Relay For Life Youth Ambassadors by posting a video online. Watch it at relayforlife.ca/Hedley.
