The Prairie Women on Snowmobiles had another fantastic year this year. They held there annual mission from February 2-8th where they raised funds for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency to help support there fight against breast cancer.
The ride this year ended up taking the women from there starting point of Meadow Lake all the way down to Swift current then back up to Prince Albert for a rough round trip of 900 kilometers. We talked with president Kelly Rea to find out how the event went.
"It was fantastic, we had three wonderful days of riding, almost four but the equipment wouldn't start and we met a lot of wonderful people around the province, we got our message out we touched quite a few lives, it was just a phenomenal year."
There was also a few notable events that happened during the ride as well. Mrs. Rea
"We had a couple special requests, one where we delivered one of our comfort quilts to a lady who is unfortunately bedridden at the moment so we actually routed all the ladies and the semi truck and we did drive by her house so she could see us and gave her a big wave it was pretty wonderful that always makes you feel good. We also had a grade seven class meet us on the trail and gave us a high five as the ladies went by."
The mission saw some big numbers put up for the fight against cancer with a total of 23,900.81 raised for the Canadian cancer society and 59,808.89 raised for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. With a grand total of 83,709.70
The ladies are looking forward to continuing the tradition next winter and into the years to come.
