Fillmore Riley commits to fundraising for 2012 Challenge for Life

For the third consecutive year, Fillmore Riley LLP is fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba’s 2012 Challenge for Life 20K Walk.

“Since this is our third year participating in the Challenge for Life 20K Walk, we are seasoned fundraisers for this important cause,” said Nicolle Brockie, General Manager at Fillmore Riley LLP. “We have a great team of walkers and fundraisers. Over the last two years, we have raised more than $46,000 for CancerCare Manitoba and we hope to raise a substantive amount again this year.”

Created by the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation, the annual walk helps participants reduce their risk of cancer by increasing awareness and committing to take an active role in making healthy lifestyle choices. Each participant commits to raise a minimum of $1,000 to further cancer research and awareness in Manitoba.

With a full roster of fundraising initiatives, including a Money Bunny Raffle, a Bud, Spud and Steak night, a bake sale and a firm luncheon, the “Many Steps, Many Gains” Fillmore Riley fundraising and walking teams are excited about what they can achieve for CancerCare Manitoba.

“There is a lot of excitement around the office,” said Brockie. “Our teams care deeply about the cause. They are also excited about making positive changes in their own lifestyles.”
