UrbaCity Challenge raises $15,000 for The Prostate Centre
Jun 11 2012
A total of $15,000 was raised for The Prostate Centre Sunday through an amazing race-style event.
About 200 people took part in the second annual UrbaCity Challenge that started at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. From there, participants raced through downtown Victoria, finding checkpoints and challenges.
Duff Lang, president of MAXIMUS Canada and host of the event, said at the closing ceremony, “Knowing that the money we raised today will stay in our community to help men and their families affected with prostate cancer is vital to choosing The Prostate Centre as our beneficiary this year.”
The $15,000 cheque was presented to Heather Gardiner, interim executive director of Victoria’s Prostate Centre, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing unbiased information on prostate cancer to men and their families.
