SURREY — It was a 50/50 event, 50 feet in the air, for 50 hours.
A Ride2Survive and Hand On Back Community Services Society campaign fundraiser, staged at Surrey’s Payal Business Centre from June 10-12 on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, raised $29,500 for brain cancer research.
Kerry Kunzli, Richard Gestle and Amarjit Dhadwar, via a crane ride, were lifted to a platform they called home for 50 hours to attract donors to a tent down below.
Ride2Survive is a B.C.-based non-profit organization that typically focuses on cycling events to raise funds.
It raised more than $500,000 last year, with all of that going towards cancer research.
