Prince George, B.C. -Time to start getting yourself in shape for the second  annual  Climb for Cancer.

Last year,  the climb  of the cutbanks on  P.G. Pulpmill Road,   raised just over $30 thousand dollars for Kordyban Lodge,  a place where those on a cancer journey  can  find a home away from home  as they undergo treatment.

“I am so  excited to be bringing back the Climb for Cancer for the second year” said Northern Lights Estate Winery’s Doug Bell.  “It was around this time last year , only   four to 6 weeks out from the actual event,  that   we launched the first Climb.  People said ‘are  you crazy?  why are you doing this?’   We are doing this  because it’s the right thing to do.”

This year,   there will be music,  food  and fun for  an expected 300 to 500 participants.   The event is set for April 22nd  from noon to  4 p.m.   More than  300  took part in  the inaugural event  last year, and  more than 200 actually climbed the hill.

Participants can register as individuals at as team  .  Registration is  $5 dollars,  in addition to whatever dollars the participant is able to fundraise before the climb.
