Slip Slidin’ Away…..In July

Sunday, January 8, 2017 @ 6:45 AM

Prince George, B.C. –  Residents of Prince George  will once again be slip slidin’ down  University Hill,  and it has nothing to do with  icy road conditions.

The YMCA , in cooperation with  Fun City Sliders,  is  bringing the 1,000 ft slip n’ slide  back to the  city  in July of this year.

It’s a fund raising event for the Y  which will make 4,000 tickets available  in an effort to raise $25 thousand dollars for YMCA Strong Kids.

Right now,  one in 5 children in the community needs financial assistance to take part in YMCA camps and programs such as Camp Kanannaq, the Aurora Leadership Program, Neighborhood Scholars and subsidized memberships.

The  event,  set for July 15th, is adding some  extras this year,  including  a Family Pass package and  unlimited slider passes for the  full day.

Tickets are expected to  go  quickly,  and there  is an early bird discount  currently in effect.
