  • We are conducting a multi-faith prayer to remember the victims. We will also fast before the event to recognize the suffering the people endured and break the fast at the end of the event by drinking water or juice.

    As a way of giving back to the community and recognizing the suffering endured by the victims of May 2009, we are encouraging the community to donate blood, sign up for organ donation, join the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network and donate to local charities. Representatives from the Canadian Blood Services will be available at the event to answer questions. We will also collect cash donations that will be handed over to the Shepherds of Good Hope.
