P.G. Relay for Life On Pace to Hold Top Spot

Thursday, June 2, 2016 @ 9:45 AM

Prince George, B.C. – With $540 thousand dollars in donations received to date,  the 2016 Prince George Relay for Life is on pace to hold  its place as the top  Relay for Life  event in  Canada.

At the end of the 24 hour relay held May 7th and 8th  at Masich Place Stadium in Prince George,  the relay had raised  $505 thousand dollars,  but the  money has continued to  come in.

“We are overwhelmed with the incredible support the Prince George Relay For Life receives,” said Aimee Cassie, Relay For Life coordinator. “This number, I believe, is reflective of the passion, dedication and determination that surround Relay For Life in Prince George. What a remarkable achievement to celebrate as we head into our 25th anniversary.”

The Prince George Relay for Life   was the top  fundraising Relay in Canada in 2014 when it raised $600 thousand dollars,   last year it repeated that feat  raising $520 thousand,  an amount  already surpassed by the 2016 event  and donations  will continue to be accepted until the end of August.

To donate online, go to www.relayforlife.ca/princegeorge.  Donations can also be made at the local Canadian Cancer Society office, located at 1100 Alward Street.
