On Saturday, June 10, 2017, Bison Transport was proud to participate in the 10th annual Challenge for Life in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation. 114 employees and family members registered to either Walk it for 20 km or Work it for 200 minutes, and the Blazing Bison team raised more than $162,000 through corporate fundraising, personal initiatives and our fundraising barbecue, which raised more than $21,000.
This is Bison's eighth year participating in Challenge for Life, bringing our company total to more than $860,500. The Challenge for Life event raised a combined total of more than $1,000,000.
"I'm extremely proud of our team at Bison for once again stepping up in support of such an important cause," said Rob Penner, President & CEO of Bison Transport. "Thank you to all of the participants, sponsors, and donors who came together to help us fundraise. At Bison, part of our core values are to foster a spirit of family, fun and giving back, and it's events such as the Challenge for Life that really exemplify these values."
