Relay for Life Takes Top National Spot…..Again
Prince George, B.C. – For the third straight year, the Relay for Life in Prince George has been named the Number One Relay for Life in Canada.
The Relay for Life in P.G. raised $557,233.54 and there are still some dollars coming in. The second place honours go to Terrabonne-Mascouche Quebec with raised $519 thousand.
Prince George’s Relay For Life is the only 24-hour Relay event in Canada.
“We’re so proud that Prince George is once again the number one Relay For Life in the nation. We wouldn’t have achieved the top spot three years in a row without tremendous support from the people of Prince George and some very special and extremely generous participants,” says Aimee Cassie, Annual Giving Coordinator Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon. “Every year the people of Prince George come together to help make Relay For Life the best in the country. It’s really inspirational and we are so grateful.”
The Society has already started planning for the 2017 relay which will mark the 25th anniversary of Relay For Life in Prince George. “We are going to do our best to beat our fundraising total and keep that title in Prince George for our special 25th anniversary,” says Cassie. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate everything we’ve accomplished in the last 25 years.”
