With the annual Terry Fox Run coming up here Sept. 15, Pharmasave staff for a second year in a row are challenging any other business or organization to a fundraising showdown.
Sabrina “Lightning” Stoessinger, Pharmasave employee and organizer of the “challenge campaign,” said Friday that staff there “would like to put some actual effort in this year,” after raising about $3,000 between the downtown store and Clinic Dispensary for last year’s run.
Pharmasave’s first challenge was one between the two locations.
“Pharmasave Downtown has grown tired of holding bragging rights over Clinic Pharmasave and as a result, both stores have joined forces to take on another competitor,” noted Stoessinger.
Pharmasave is challenging any group of people to raise more funds than they do by registration time—1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Those willing to accept the challenge can contact either Stoessinger or Nancy Kehler at 274-5383.
Both Pharmasave and Clinic Pharmasave staff have begun accepting pledges so the public is welcome to show their support at either location now.
