Run Cancelled

It used to be a huge fundraiser in Vernon, but it won't be held this year.

The annual CIBC Run for the Cure has been cancelled in Vernon.  The society says it is due to a drop in participation and money raised.  The Canadian Cancer Society says 5 years ago the event raised $66,000 but dropped to $23,000 last year.   

The cancellation comes after the recent announcement that the society's Vernon office will close in mid-September.
