“We are bringing awareness here and we hope to achieve more than that.”

Last year they ran 38 miles to raise $ 1,000 for childhood cancer research.

That year, the Crowns Against Cancer team walked downtown Sault Ste. Marie to raise more money and awareness.

Last year the Relay For Life team walked halfway around Chippewa County on the cause, this year an empty car went down Portage and Ashmun.

The car represents a child who died of cancer.

Volunteers say the people they met have been very generous.

“We have already received a lot of donations. Lots of people stopped here and then, both ways that we went, lots of people stopped us and asked us what we were doing today, so it was great, ”said Samantha Pomeroy, Team Crowns Against Cancer.

Anyone who missed the girls over the weekend can still donate to a good cause here.
