Adults, teens team up to host toe-tapping Cancer Society fundraiser

Adults and teens have joined forces to get Houston tapping its feet at an April 27 family dance fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Adults and teens have joined forces to get Houston tapping its feet at an April 27 family dance fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Generation Gap is a Relay for Life team with a fairly even split of adults and teenagers, though youth is set to tip the scales as more teens are signing up to the 13-person roster.

The family dance that Generation Gap is hosting will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Houston Community Hall.

The dance will include food, lots of kids’ activities and of course, dancing. Admission is by donation.

For many Generation Gap members, the 2012 Relay for Life will be their second or third time taking part in the Canadian Cancer Society’s largest fundraiser.

But the team will face stiff competition from the 13 other teams that have so far signed up for the June 22 relay.

Jenny Powell’s Boot Camp team is clearly pumped, having raised $1,015 in donations, but the Charter Chicks, led by Jocelyn Bell, are nipping at their heels with $815 raised so far.
