The funds raised will be staying in the South Cariboo and used to help the programs available for youth in the community.

During the event, grand prizes will be awarded to the top individual fundraisers, as well as team prizes for the best dressed and most enthusiastic teams.

“I am really excited to see what the teams come up with. I think the theme is going to be a fun one,” said Thomas.
