Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life

PG relay for life

Staff from the Prince George office (the “Triton Tenderfoots”) participated in the 24 hour Relay For Life held in Prince George May 9-10, 2015, to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. The team raised a total of $4,246.25 in donations with a considerable amount coming from Triton employees.

Over the 24 hour period we had 12 staff participate walking for periods of 1 to 3 hours at a time (as well as a few spouses and children joining in for support). Together the team tracked their activity with a Fitbit logger passed between them, recording a total of 146,254 steps or 68.21 miles over the 24 hour period.

As promised, PG Operations Manager Dave Warburton donated an additional $10 for each 10,000 steps taken, for a total of $146.25 that brought our final total to $4,246.25 which more than doubled our original fundraising goal of $2,000! The city of Prince George ended up being the No. 1 Relay for Life city in Canada. With donations still coming in into the summer, the total had surpassed $519,000, giving Prince George the title for the second year in a row.
