Nanaimo bowling alley hosts cancer campaign

Brechin Lanes is teaming up with the Canadian Cancer Society and bowling centres across the country for the annual Knockdown Cancer campaign.

Throughout the month of January, Brechin Lanes is donating 25 cents from every paid shoe rental to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Money raised through the campaign will go toward life-saving cancer research.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of cancer and cancer prevention to the community and to encourage everyone to join the fight for life.

The first year of the campaign saw more than $135,000 raised by participating bowling centres, making Knockdown Cancer the third-largest fundraiser in support of the Canadian Cancer Society.
