For yet another year, Bison employees came together in support of an important cause, in the 10th anniversary of the Challenge for Life, raising funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation (read: Case Study: The Anatomy of a Corporate Fundraising Campaign). Our combined efforts were a perfect example of our Mission in Action, displaying our Core Values of Spirit, Service, and Success.

With CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life event set to take place this weekend, the Blazing Bisons are in the final stages of a fundraising campaign that has spanned several months and put them at the top of the corporate standings!
Having raised over $100,000 already, the Blazing Bisons are the top corporate team participating in the Challenge for Life and that number includes only the individual fundraising efforts. Bison's Challenge for Life team members have put in countless hours raising money through a variety of initiatives, from baking cupcakes to making quilts.
To begin April, we launched our Bison Cares campaign for the spring, encouraging Drivers and office staff to get involved in local charitable initiatives by making a donation or volunteering their time.
One of the biggest aspects of the Bison Cares campaign is our organization's annual involvement in the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation's Challenge for Life, a one-day fundraising event in which participants can walk for 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) or, as of this year, take part in a 200-minute workout. Last year, our team of 57 walkers raised over $100,000 in this event alone! Click here to read the case study about how we were able to run a successful corporate fundraising campaign!
