Invitation to the Aurora Torch Of Life Relay
Dec 9 2010
Let's make Aurora Proud
Launching a 4 Year 200 Country Student Torch Relay for Organ/Tissue Donations
We would like to invite everyone to join Step By Step's launching of its 8th campaign SOS THE WORLD. Step By Step is a charity, dedicated to promote organ & tissue donations and hopefully save lives by empowering Students to carry the Torch Of Life worldwide. The famous Torch Of Life that is being relayed was blessed by Pope John Paul II on Sep 5 2001, when he proclaimed that Organ & tissue donations was a Genuine Act of Love and encouraged us to let the students carry it and be the spokespersons;
His legacy was to bring all faiths & cultures together to address the major issues of the day.
SOS THE WORLD begins on February 28 2011 in Washington DC and will continue through 100 countries on a 4 year journey.
Whereas; Students from all walks of life have been carrying the Torch throughout Canada, USA & Europe & with the media, public & government inspired millions.
Whereas on June 30 2010; Blair & Marla Cuthbert, students from Aurora inspired Step By Step by carrying the Torch to Queens Park to save their dad Bruce, who was in need of a liver transplant;
Whereas; We have chosen the Town of Aurora to launch SOS THE WORLD
