‘Challenge for Life’ Raises $1M for CancerCare

By Brian Schultz

Saturday’s 20k walk for CancerCare Manitoba helped raised $1 million for the organization.

The 4th annual Challenge for Life walk included 700 walkers, who collected donations from 14,397 donors to help raise critical funds and awareness for CancerCare.

The 20-kilometre challenge began at Assiniboine Park, where walkers were treated to music from local artists along the route.

Next year’s walk is scheduled for June 9, 2012.
