(FORMERLY KNOWN AS TELUS FIELD) 10233 96 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0A5
This all-day family friendly event has something for everyone! The main event, located at the Re/Max Field (formerly known as Telus Field), will be a tournament style relay race with teams of six (18+) through a fun and crazy inflatable obstacle course. The winning team will claim the first ever spot on The Rheanna Bowl trophy. All the net proceeds will be donated to The Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation - Neurology Department.
On October 31, 2016, Rheanna Trepanier was picked up from school complaining of a bad headache, sore eyes, and feeling sick to her stomach. Marrissa Trepanier, Rheanna’s mother, brought her into the Stollery where she was rushed into surgery. After various examinations and tests, the family received terrible news. The doctors found four malignant brain tumors.
Over the next few days, Rheanna was repeatedly on the operating table; she had to endure three brain surgeries and a blood transfusion to decrease the built-up pressure in her brain. It was only days later Rheanna’s tenth birthday that she was diagnosed terminal.
Ten years old with terminal brain cancer and given less than a year to live, she decided to create, “Rheanna’s Bucket List” to make the most out of the time she has left. With help from some kind-hearted people that were touched by her story, Rheanna got to tick some items off her bucket list. Driving a tank on the army base, dog sledding in the Northwest Territories, meeting Connor McDavid, and tours of news and radio stations are just a few examples of her amazing experiences.
Not that we aren't dog people, but dogs will not be permitted at this event.
Yes, there will be bouncy castle for the children along with face painting and a dunk tank.
