The community climbs for cancer on Saturday.
The most popular vertical walk of the year plods up the face of the cutbanks from 12-4 p.m. with Northern Lights Estate Winery as the home base. It's the fourth annual Climb For Cancer.
"The money raised from this event will support the Kordyban Lodge," said a statement frmo the Canadian Cancer Society. "People diagnosed with cancer face many challenges. Travelling to a distant location for treatment away from family and friends can be overwhelming. A stay at the Kordyban Lodge helps a person being treated for cancer feel supported, informed and empowered."
The Lodge has a range of amenities, including private accommodations, three meals a day, WiFi connectivity, a wig and breast prosthesis bank for cancer patients, on-site staff around the clock, and many more services tailored for cancer patients and their families.
There is easy access at the lodge to information and referrals to Canadian Cancer Society support programs, such as CancerConnection.
Teams and individuals have been fundraising for this event in their own ways, but participants can join in the walk for their own personal contribution. The Climb For Cancer is there to show how much effort Prince George is willing to put into the fight against cancer - all the way from the river valley to the top of the city.
