Brian Harrison from Scotia Bank, right, presents a cheque to Amber Drake, captain of Have A Hand from Canadian Tire.  To encourage participation, Scotiabank gave $1,000 for a draw – every team in the province that had 10 or more people registered was entered – out of 462. Have a Hand was the lucky winner putting their team total to $3,415.  Scotiabank gave another $1,000 for early bird registration (won by a Prince George team) and several community sponsorships of $2,357 each (Quesnel was one of the recipients as we have a returning Scotiabank team that participates in our Relay every year.) Quesnel’s total to date is $142,660!
