Canadian Cancer Society annual giving co-ordinator Jennifer Dies (left) received a donation of $5,059.24 from local business Lynx Creek Industrial & Hydrovac Ltd.
On hand for the donation at Lynx Creek’s Athabasca Street location were driver Brad Beatty and vice-president of operations Roger Pynn.
With cancer hitting close to home for several employees of Lynx Creek, the full service utility contractor earmarked fundraising efforts to join in the fight against cancer, going so far as to paint one of its tri-axle hydrovac trucks pink.
For each job the “cancer sucks” truck is hired to do, a percentage of money goes into a fund to help the community’s cancer-fighting efforts.
“It’s a good way to give back, for all the support we have received as a company,” Pynn said.
