Some extra incentive to raise money for this year's Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is on the line.
The names of each of those who raise $500 will be put into a draw for a chance to win a 2019 Nissan Micra or a 2019 Hyundai Elantra. Each additional $500 will earn another entry into the draw.
The cars were donated Thursday by Northland Auto Group. Relay for life is set for June 8-9 at Exhibition Park.
"This is one way that we can continue to encourage participants in their incredible efforts," Northland Nissan dealer principal Peter Sia said.
It will be the second Relay for Life held at Exhibition Park and a change will will see the site switch to a more traditional layout. Specifically, the track will take participants on one big loop that will be easier to follow and, according to organizers, will enhance the feeling of community and connectedness that has been key to the event.
