Top Re­lay for Life fundrais­ers could win car

The Prince George Citizen - - Local - Cit­i­zen staff

Some ex­tra in­cen­tive to raise money for this year’s Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety Re­lay For Life is on the line.

The names of each of those who raise $500 or more will be put into a draw for a chance to win a 2019 Nis­san Mi­cra or a 2019 Hyundai Elantra. Each ad­di­tional $500 will earn another en­try into the draw.

The cars were do­nated Thurs­day by North­land Auto Group. Re­lay for Life is set for June 8-9 at Ex­hi­bi­tion Park.

“This is one way that we can con­tinue to en­cour­age par­tic­i­pants in their in­cred­i­ble ef­forts,” North­land Nis­san dealer prin­ci­pal Peter Sia said.

It will be the sec­ond Re­lay for Life held at Ex­hi­bi­tion Park and a change will see the site switch to a more tra­di­tional lay­out.

Specif­i­cally, the track will take par­tic­i­pants on one big loop that will be eas­ier to fol­low and, ac­cord­ing to or­ga­niz­ers, will en­hance the feel­ing of com­mu­nity and con­nect­ed­ness that has been key to the event.

On­line reg­is­tra­tion for the Prince Ge­orge Re­lay For Life – still the only 24-hour Re­lay For Life in Canada – is open. To reg­is­ter, please visit con­vio.cancer.ca and fol­low the links. Reg­is­tra­tion can also be done in per­son at the lo­cal Cana­dian Cancer So­ci­ety of­fice, found at 1100 Al­ward Street.
