Fillmore Riley raises more than $66,000 for CancerCare Manitoba.

Fillmore Riley was the first law firm to become involved with the Challenge for Life 20K Walk. Team Fillmore Riley “Many Steps, Many Gains” raised more than $20,000 in 2012, bringing our three-year grand total to more than $66,000.

The rainy day did not dampen the spirits of Team Fillmore Riley walkers on June 9, 2012.

“Our team got wet but they didn’t mind because they were walking for a cause that matters to them,” said Nicolle Brockie, general manager at Fillmore Riley and chair of the Challenge for Life Committee. “They knew a few hours of walking in less-than-ideal weather is nothing compared to the impact cancer has on the lives of so many Manitobans. We’re very proud our fundraising efforts for CancerCare Manitoba and feel good about making a difference.”

This year’s Challenge for Life 20K Walk raised $955,000 for CancerCare Manitoba. Since the event’s inception five years ago, the Challenge for Life event has raised $4,685,000 for CancerCare Manitoba.
