WINNIPEG, Man. — The Blazing Bisons and Maxim Great Dames & Dudes did the trucking industry proud, raising about $150,000 between them at the recent CancerCare Manitoba Challenge for Life 20K Walk.

The walk was held in Winnipeg June 12. The Blazing Bisons were the top fundraiser of all teams, raising $93,223 thanks in part to a $250 contribution from Bison itself for every participant.  Bison employees from its Mississauga operations instead took part in the Canadian Cancer Society 12-Hour Relay for Life on June 4, adding to the total amount raised for cancer research.

“Bison is proud to have taken part in such a worthy cause. Cancer affects us all. We have several members of the Bison Transport Family who are battling various forms of this disease right now,” said Bison president and CEO Don Streuber. “As a large organization, taking an active role in these events was the right thing to do.”

The Maxim Great Dames & Dudes, meanwhile, raised $56,738 during the 20K walk, making them the fourth largest contributor in terms of money raised.
