Cap-it joins the Relay sponsorship team

For the first time, Cap-it has added their business to the sponsors of Relay for Life

Wendy Heppner is happy to sponsor Relay for Life.

Quesnel Relay for Life depends on the generosity of the public and the commitment of its sponsors to make a success of the event each year.

Always on the lookout for new sponsors, Relay for Life organizers are proud to welcome Cap-it as a new sponsor this year.

Wendy Heppner said when she was approached by Relay for Life she said yes to sponsorship because fighting cancer is one of the biggest causes in Quesnel.

“With our slogan ‘Because life’s an adventure’ it ties nicely with promoting an outdoor healthy lifestyle and living life to the fullest which is also part of the Canadian Cancer Society message,” Heppner said.

Heppner is no stranger to cancer. She lost her mother, mother-in-law, friends and extended family members to the disease.

“Who hasn’t been touched by cancer?” She asked.

As a local company, Heppner believes it’s important to support these fundraisers.

“Companies have the ability and the opportunity to reach the community, in terms of awareness and support, through their customers and connections,” she said.

“We’re committed to sponsoring $2,000 and hope to surpass that threshold.”

She said the company is donating $50 to Relay for Life from canopy sales between now and the end of August.

“It’s a reasonably attainable goal but we’re hoping to sail right past that.”

So if you’re planning on purchasing a canopy, now would be a good time to visit Cap-it on Keis Avenue, Two Mile Flat and help support Relay for Life.
