RFL Schedule and Deadlines
March 20th @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 1: Photo Contest!
We want to highlight the importance of staying safe and healthy amid the pandemic! So show off your favourite mask!
March 21th @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 2: Why I Relay!
For the second challenge, we ask you to reflect on these two questions: Why do you relay? What does RFL mean to you? You can choose any type of format for your art piece (poster, drawing, picture, video, song) as long as it is original! Points will be awarded for quality and creativity. Good luck!
March 22nd @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 3: Scavenger Hunt!
In Challenge 3, get to know what UBCCA-RFL does by going on a virtual scavenger hunt via our website! You can find the scavenger hunt checklist on our participant’s Facebook group page. Points will be awarded based on thoughtful reflection and presentation!
March 23rd @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 4: Luminary Decoration!
Challenge 4 is a special homage to the luminary ceremony. Once it gets dark out, every RFL event takes a pause to hold a very special luminary ceremony. During this time, we light the track with luminaries – small paper bags lit with a candle. We encourage everyone to design their own luminary virtually using the template that can be found on the Facebook page! Points will be awarded for how creative, reflective, and meaningful your design is.
March 24th @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 5: Cooking Competition!
Healthy eating is a crucial part of a healthy life! With the thought of preserving one’s health in mind, we challenge you to bake healthy banana bread or, if you do not have access to an oven, a healthy version of a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Once you are done baking/cooking, get your camera out and snap a photo! Points will be awarded based on creative presentation, and a good quality photo. Feel free to follow the recipe provided on the Facebook page, or create your own!
March 25th @ 11:59 PM is the deadline for Challenge 6: Cancer Knowledge – Riddles!
Challenge 6 will test your knowledge and understanding of cancer! Answer through a series of flash questions before the time runs out. The person with the most points wins! Find the link in our Facebook group.
Join our livestream celebration and send-off for prizes, giveaways, ceremonies, performers and the finale!
