Prairie Women on Snowmobiles’ mission ride will hit Moose Jaw for the first time this February.
The 13th annual eight-day mission ride to raise funds for breast cancer research begins on Feb. 1 and will hit Moose Jaw on Feb. 4. Club president Carol McKnight said, in the past 12 years, the rides have raised more than $1.8 million and all of the funds stay in Saskatchewan.
“We’re hoping to increase that and bring more awareness into areas where we’ve never gone before,” said McKnight. “It’s rewarding when you see the breast cancer survivors out there when you had a part in possibly saving their lives and bringing the awareness of early detection. So it’s more than just snowmobiling.”
On Feb. 4, the club will have a supper at 6:30 p.m. sponsored by Beta Sigma Phi. The public is welcome to meet the members of the club and learn more information during the club’s continental breakfast at 7 a.m. at the Heritage Inn on Feb. 5.
“Anybody is certainly more than welcome to come out and meet the team and talk to the team,” said McKnight. “We encourage anybody along the way if they want to be a support rider to find out where we’re going to be … It’ll be all on our website hopefully by the end of the week.”
