Friday, March 3, 2023 – A playground in the Sunriver neighbourhood of Sooke will soon be named in honour of Hannah Day, a child who brought the community together – rallying in her fight against cancer – and inspiring thousands of people to register as stem cell donors.
A community event will be held on Friday, March 31st at 1pm to unveil the park sign and a new swing at 2368 Sunriver Way.
Order of events:
- Speakers: Maja Tait, District of Sooke Mayor; Brooke Ervin, Hannah’s mom
- Sign Unveiling
- Swing Ribbon Cutting
- Social opportunity, including complimentary “build a bears,” and hot dogs and drinks served by the Sooke Lions
Parking is limited at the site and will be reserved for Hannah’s family, media and event volunteers. Community members wishing to attend are encouraged to walk or bike to the event, or make use of nearby parking at the Sunriver Allotment Gardens or SEAPARC.
Hannah was a Sunriver resident most of her life. In true “Hannah fashion”, the Hannah Day Playground will continue to bring people together.
