Monday, June 09, 2014 – Bison Transport’s team, the Blazing Bisons, was the top corporate team for the 2014 Challenge for Life, raising an impressive $108,440 for the Cancer Care Manitoba fundraiser.
Sixty three Bison employees, including friends and family, took part in the Challenge for Life 20 kilometer walk through the streets of Winnipeg, Manitoba on Saturday June 7th. Bison’s goal was to break $100,000 and the team was very excited to meet and exceed this goal.
Another highlight for the Blazing Bison team was Rob Penner, Executive Vice President and COO, who was one of the top 10 Challengers and single handedly raised $13,500.
“Bison Transport is tremendously proud of our Blazing Bison team for all their effort and hard work towards the Challenge for Life,” said Don Streuber, President & CEO of Bison Transport. “We would like to thank our industry partners, suppliers, customers, friends and family for their generosity in helping us raise over $107,000 for Cancer Care Manitoba.”
Bison Transport has participated in the walk since it started 5 years ago. In that time, Bison has raised over $420,000 for Cancer Care Manitoba.
