Bison Transport staff will be washing cars at the company's Winnipeg terminal tomorrow afternoon to raise money for the upcoming CancerCare Manitoba Challenge for Life walk for cancer.
WINNIPEG, Man. — Bison Transport has entered a team into the CancerCare Manitoba Challenge for Life, a 20-kilometre walk to raise money CancerCare Manitoba. The 45-person team, known as “Blazing Bison,” has already raised more than $72, 000.
As part of the team’s fundraising efforts, Bison Transport will be holding a public car wash May 15. The company is inviting local businesses and residents to come to its Winnipeg terminal at 1001 Sherwin Road between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to get their cars washed for a minimum donation of $5.
“The Bison family has several incredible members of our team battling various forms of cancer at this very moment,” says Don Streuber, president and CEO of Bison. “Our ‘family’ is a tight-knit group and when one of our own is touched by cancer, it affects us all and it drives us to do something about it.”
Bison employees who are not walking are participating in a variety fundraising activities such as the car wash, an upcoming silent auction or donations made through payroll deductions. In addition, Bison has corporately donated $250 to each participant for signing up to take the Challenge.
“Bison has long been recognized for our leadership and ongoing community support and when a need arises everyone gets involved, even our suppliers have joined in to support us in reaching our goal by donating money and or prizes for our upcoming silent auction” says team captain, Laura La Palme.
