Teams take on Amazing Community Challenge

Women Walking for Hope are known for their yearly 42-km trek from Petawawa to Pembroke and back to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society Renfrew County Community Office Wheels of Hope Transportation program. This year, they’ve added another activity to their list, creating the 1st Annual Amazing Community Challenge. Challenges during the Aug. 25 event, which raised over $2,000 for the transportation program, ranged from the physical to the psychological, but all were family friendly. Many local businesses and organizations throughout Petawawa and Pembroke helped out by organizing a challenge or providing a location for a challenge, as well as donating silent auction items. Chamber of Secrets donated a prize for a draw at the end of the event.
