Shayne used his love for sport to tap into the curling community to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Read on to see how he explains the success of the event in his own words:
I created a fundraiser curling bonspiel to help raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). With this project I helped raise $8,626.80 for the CCS. I had great community support. I had 20 teams come out for the event at the Selkirk Curling Club on February 6th, 2016. I had support from various media sources like the Selkirk Record, CBC Radio, 103.1 Virgin Radio and Global News. I had a 33 prize silent auction and 50/50. An anonymous man made a donation of $1,250 during the event. This event was so successful it will be happening again next year! A Twitter page has been created for this event so give it a follow for future updates!
