Celebrate a legacy of kindness for Rebecca Schofield Day, Sept. 21, 2019

On Saturday, September 21, 2019, Riverview residents are encouraged to perform acts of kindness to mark the third annual Rebecca Schofield Day. The annual day in her name recognizes Becca’s campaign urging others to spread kindness, which started in Becca’s hometown of Riverview during her treatments for brain cancer and rapidly caught on worldwide before her passing in 2018. It is known as the #BeccaToldMeTo movement.

Becca’s family and friends invite you to join in celebrating her legacy of kindness on Sept. 21 the Riverview Arts Centre. There will be a free BBQ hosted by the Riverview Lions Club starting at 6:30 p.m. before a rousing community concert gets underway at 7:30 p.m. with performances by 10 local artists. The event includes a silent auction as well as #BeccaToldMeTo merchandise for sale.

Admission is by donation to the Rebecca Schofield Foundation. 

Attendees can reserve tickets through www.riverviewartscentre.ca and at the following outlets:

Jean Coutu 438 Coverdale Road, Riverview
Sobeys 1160 Findlay Blvd, Riverview
Frank's Music 245 Carson Drive, Moncton

On May 14, 2017, the legislative assembly of New Brunswick unanimously passed a motion recognizing the third Saturday of September as Becca Schofield Day. Schofield lost her battle with cancer on Feb. 17, 2018, at the age of 18. Later in the year, she was named posthumously as a recipient of the Order of New Brunswick.
