Quiet Opening Weekend for Operation Red Nose
Prince George, B.C. – A quiet opening weekend for Operation Red Nose in Prince George .
On Friday, 22 volunteer teams provided 32 rides, travelling 1,622 kilometres. That compares to the 46 rides that teams delivered on the first night in 2014.
On Saturday, 16 teams delivered 56 rides, travelling 2,025 km. That compares to the 67 rides that volunteers provided in 2014.
“While it was a relatively quiet night in terms of rides, we had an enthusiastic group of volunteers who were ready to go at a moment’s notice,” said Operation Red Nose spokesperson Andrea Johnson. “Everyone who called us for a ride, got one. It was also great to see so many new faces who answered the call to keep Prince George roads safe.”
She says 183 people have signed up to volunteer, but welcomes more as things promise to get busier as we head deeper into the holiday season.
