Canfor Prince George Fights Cancer as Top Fundraising Team

At the 25th annual Prince George Relay for Life, the Canfor team came out as the top fundraising team, having raised over $30,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The 35 members of the ‘Canfor Cancer Crushers’ took turns running and walking the track at Masich Place Stadium on May 13. The event brought out over 1,100 participants and 127 teams and is currently the only 24-hour Relay for Life in Canada (other are typically 6 or 12 hours). The Canfor team was also joined by co-workers who came out to show their support. 

The team did an outstanding job fundraising for this event. At the time of writing, their 2017 total is $30,143,75 which is more than double what they raised in 2016 and far exceeds their $20,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who participated in the event and donated to this important cause. Special recognition goes to those who remained with the team for the full 24 hours: Luke Drapeau, General Manager, Capital and Maintenance Systems; Judy Vasily, Senior Manager, Business Development & Strategic Fibre; Marissa Dodge, Human Resources Administrative Assistant; and Adam Lafrentz, Communications Analyst. 

We are very proud of this team and their contribution to help the fight against cancer.
