Supercars rally around good causes

The Diamond Rally event received a nice write up in the North Shore News!

West Vancouver couple Leanne Chan and Darren Pedersen will be among the local residents participating in an upcoming Luxury Supercar Weekend event as a means of supporting those diagnosed with cancer.

The Diamond Rally is an annual celebration of supercars being held Saturday, May 30 from Vancouver to Whistler along the Sea to Sky Highway. The event has a fundraising component and drivers are encouraged to raise funds for the charity of their choice.

Chan and Pedersen will be supporting the colorectal surgery group at Vancouver's St. Paul's Hospital in light of Pedersen and his sister Kelly's recent fights against colorectal and brain cancer, respectively. Info:

The couple and Kelly also give back in other ways, including through their One More Day Campaign (, aimed at providing families that have been affected by cancer the opportunity to make lasting memories with the ones they love and raise awareness for the importance of early detection.

They also developed The Cancer Store (, an online resource and guide that walks those faced with cancer from diagnosis through treatment and then on to recovery.

The site has evolved into a cookbook and guide, Health, the Way Nature Intended, that will be released this summer.
