I am taking the Challenge at CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life – because I have lost close friends and family to cancer and I have seen the good work Cancercare MB does to support those battling cancer and support them and their families.
This year in my fundraising campaign and during the walk I will be thinking of my good friend Yan Wing Lai that passed away in 2011 one month after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Wing was a wonderful colleague and friend who only gave to others and never asked for anything in return but friendship.
My mentor and friend Darren Cosentino is the reason I have stepped forward to lead the Bison team in this event. He was grateful for the resources and support available from CancerCareMB and all of our Blazing Bison Challenge For Life fundraising goes directly into the Darren Cosentino Memorial Fund.
The Bison Transport family has once again put together a team to help raise funds for a cause that is very near and dear to our hearts. The battle against cancer. We have been very active in our communities, helping to organize and lead activities that help promote healthy living and fund vital research that can save lives and eliminate cancers. We are calling on our industry partners, friends and family to help us continue to fight a disease that has touched us all. Last year, with your help the Bison Transport managed to raise over $160,000 for the cause and to date, we have helped to raise over $1,000,000.00 mark, with your help!
On Saturday, June 8th, we will be completing a 20km walk in support of all those we have lost, all those who are still fighting, and those yet to contract this deadly disease. This year, my goal is to raise at least $500 and should I accomplish this goal, Bison Transport’s leadership team has pledged to match that $500. In effect, every dollar I raise equals two dollars earned to fight cancer. How can any of us pass up on that opportunity?
Any support you can provide would be apreciated.
Thank You Very Much,
