Pink Mower Donated as Part of 2014 New Brunswick Relay for Life Fundraiser
Cancer doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care who it effects: young, old, race or gender.
We all know someone who has been stricken with cancer, in one form or another. We've seen first-hand the devastation it can bring to an individual and to a family. Some people win their battle with cancer, while others put up a courageous fight, but seem to lose anyway. It's heartbreaking to watch.
It's getting to be that time of year again, time for Relay for Life. Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings you and your community together to celebrate life and fight cancer. Relay has a festival-like atmosphere that your family, friends and co-workers can enjoy regardless of age or fitness level!
In 2013, 16,224 teams raised $46.5 million across Canada.
In support of Northern Carleton Relay for Life, owners of Florenceville Ag Ltd., Wallace and Nancy Antworth have donated an Ariens Mower after Nancy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Nancy has since won her battle with cancer and the couple is working to raise awareness and money for Relay for Life to help others stricken with cancer.
I had a chance to catch up with Wallace at the Hartland Trade Show over the weekend, where the mower was on display. Here's what he had to say.
This beautiful mower is painted pink in honor of Nancy's battle with cancer. It will be raffled off to help raise money for this year's Relay for Life.
Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10. Tickets are being sold at various locations and at Florenceville Ag Ltd. All Proceeds to Relay for Life 2014.
