UrbaCity Challenge participants enjoyed the fruits of their labour at the wrap up event.

UrbaCity raises $50,000 for Prostate Centre

The UrbaCity course offered racers 26 challenge stations at Victoria businesses and hot spot

Adventure racers took over downtown Victoria on Sunday raising more than $50,000 in the fifth annual UrbaCity Challenge.

The UrbaCity course offered the racers 26 challenge stations at Victoria businesses and hot spots, with each providing tests of brain and body.

“We set a lofty goal of raising $50,000 in honour of our fifth year, and the enthusiasm of our participants made it happen,” said Duff Lang, president of Maximus Canada, the UrbaCity presenting partner.

Racers brought in $35,081.95 in fundraising. Combined with a standing donation of $15,000 from Maximus Canada, $50,081.95 was raised for The Prostate Centre – the highest amount ever raised by the event.

The Prostate Centre provides prostate cancer screening, outreach, counselling, information, and care for men and their families, and is a local non-profit organization that is funded by donations.
