Lars fought her way through cold, slimy jello, taking down the likes of Grease Monkey, Joss the Boss, Insania Mania, and First Nation Domination to seize the belt of Jello Wrestling Champion of the World in the women's division at Treaty Days. 

Just when Lars thought her championship belt was safe around her waist, out of the dark woods appeared a large hairy creature.  It was "The Sasquatch" making a surprise appearance to challenge the champion in the jello-filled ring in a quest to raise money for cancer patients.

Spectators were also challenged.  The Sasquatch, with the support of Chief and Council, challenged community members to dig into their pockets and donate any money towards supporting cancer patients in Sandy Lake.

The Sasquatch, a.k.a. Marie-Elaine Delvin, Sandy Lake's nurse-in-charge has been a leader in the community raising money for cancer patients.  Last year, Marie-Elaine initiated a head-shaving fundraising event that raised almost $20,000.00.

The Sasquatch raised $1,300.00 in the jello wrestling event this year.
