Sponsor Charlie Bewley’s Ultramarathon Run on May 1st and support The BC Cancer Foundation for your chance to win a private screening for you and 20 of your friends to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One, the day before general release in theaters.
On May 1st 2011, Charlie Bewley will be attempting an Ultramarathon in memory of Jocelyn Clarke and in support of the BC Cancer Foundation. The feat will take place in sync with the BMO Vancouver Marathon and Half-Marathon.
In support of this challenge, Summit Entertainment have very kindly donated the wonderful prize of a private screening of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 the day before general release to one lucky winner and 20 of their friends*. For every dollar sponsored, you will receive one ticket in the draw to win this and many other prizes. All funds raised will be donated to the British Columbia Cancer Foundation which, together with the BC Cancer Agency, helped Jocelyn throughout her illness.
‘Jocelyn and I met on a bus to an audition in North Vancouver over two years ago. To strike up a rapport with someone in that short time goes some way to explaining the magnetism Jocelyn had; brimming enthusiasm, warmth and a wonderful smile draws you in, before her colorful charisma and lust for life opens up in conversation.
‘The next time I saw Jocelyn was on the set of ‘Twilight Saga: New Moon’” where she was doubling Dakota Fanning. Once again, her radiance lit up the bleak and haunting Volturi Chamber. It was so nice to see her doing her thing and we chin-wagged much during the downtime. A friendship without pressures, we enjoyed each others company when it serendipitously occurred.
‘Early 2010, I learned that Jocelyn had contracted a rare and terminal lung cancer with metastasis to the lymph nodes and spine. When I finally drummed up the courage to call her, all the pain, fear and strength she was experiencing was vividly and viscerally translated to me through our long conversation; one that will stay with me forever. Though empathy, in these circumstances, is null and void…
‘Jocelyn passed away on February 13th 2011, aged just 36. To say that she ‘lost her battle with cancer’ would do a huge disservice to the incredible strength she showed during the course of her treatment. Jocelyn kept us all informed of her fight through her very frank and honest daily Facebook updates; it was raw and real.
