South Surrey prostate cancer fundraiser a success

Annual event at Alder Crossing Shopping Centre brings in nearly $3,000

Nearly $3,000 was raised at the annual Prostate Cancer Fundraiser at Alder Crossing Shopping Centre last month.

Event organizers handed over a cheque for $2,810 to Surrey’s Prostate Cancer Canada Network on Sept. 28.

The funds are to go towards enabling the local Prostate Cancer Canada support group to continue its work providing resources and information for men with prostate cancer and survivors, as well as complementary and preventative medicine for prostate cancer.

The support group is open to the public and meets at 10 a.m. on the last Saturday of each month in the cafeteria at Surrey Memorial Hospital.
