Prince George, B.C. – Once again, the Prince George Road Runners and the 2nd year students  at UNBC’s Medical Program  have  joined forces to  run for  charity.

The  event,  which   is officially called  the Run for Rural Medicine, is a fund raiser for a local charity . This morning, 200  runners were registered  for the run which  started at the Hart Community Centre.

Runners have the option of 5, ten, or 21.1 km  runs.  While  entry fees are  waived for PG Road Runners,  there is an entry fee for others  who  are taking part, the fee is based on the length of the  planned run.

Among the runners, is  Tony Prazma,  whose participation today makes it his 116th straight  Road Runner race   in which he has participated. That makes it 18 years  in which he has  taken part in each and every PG Road Runners Race.

This year, the  proceeds will be donated to the Prince George Hospice Society.

In the past, each run has raised  more than a thousand dollars for a local charity.
