KIDS FOR a Cause relay team raised $4

Kids for a Cause cook, serve and raise money

One Terrace team of young people raised nearly $5,000 in the kitchen for their second year in a row to raise money for Relay for Life.

RELAY FOR Life is this weekend and one team of young people went into the kitchen for their second year in a row to raise money for the event.

Kids for a Cause raised $4,300 at a dinner at Don Diegos where they did the preparation, cooking and served the meals.

The event also featured a silent auction with Vancouver Canucks items.

“Last year was a wonderful experience for the group of teens, as not many get the chance to go into a business at such a young age and help run an event,” said Lisa Stella, parent of one of the team members.

The team got its start when, in September 2008, a friend and classmate of a group of 10-year-olds was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He was sent to Vancouver for a three year treatment plan of chemotherapy and radiation.

The following spring of 2009, the friends decided to form a Relay for Life Team in support of their classmate and his family, and that year they raised just over $1,000.

Four years later, they have raised almost $30,000 in total.
