2017 Soapbox Races Another Great Success! » 2017-Jun-14

Thank you! The generous support of our sponsors, participants, volunteers, donors and vendors made the 14th Annual George Jeffrey Children’s Centre Soapbox Races a great success. Together we raised over $31,000 to enrich children’s lives!

This year’s event would not have been possible without our presenting sponsor Best Western Plus Dryden Hotel & Conference Centre, event partners Superior North Association of Professional Paramedics (SNAPP), and our extensive team of committed volunteers. This was truly a community event! For a full list of this year’s sponsors please click here.

The funds raised this year are being directed toward George Jeffrey Children’s Foundation’s “No Child Should Wait” initiative, which is bridging the gap of services for the 400 children on the Centre’s wait list. Our community’s generosity is helping children reach their fullest potential.
