Drowned teen

Jaxsn Cahill

A memorial for the teen who drowned at Westbank’s Gellatly Bay has been moved to Sunday.

A “Skate for Jaxsn” will start at 2 p.m. at the West Kelowna Skate Park, behind the Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre.

The event was originally announced for Friday, but the skate park is booked that day.

Hundreds of friends and family of Jaxsn Cahill showed up Sunday at the CNR wharf in Gellatly Bay for an impromptu memorial.

Hundreds are expected at the skate park as well.

Cahill, 15, drowned after jumping off the wharf early Saturday morning.

To honour Jaxsn, the family is asking people to make a donation to the Canadian Mental Health Association Kelowna-Skate for Jaxsn . . . Live to Skate campaign at cmhakb.z2systems.com/np/clients/cmhakb/donation.jsp?campaign=126&
