Save-On employees lose locks for the cure

Feeling a little light headed after having their heads shaved Wednesday, Sept. 30.

A group of Save On Food employees at Coronation Mall is feeling a little light headed after raising $679 for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Run For the Cure by having their heads shaved Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Their new dos are in support of 11 Save On Foods team members in the Nanaimo region, who signed up for the Oct. 4 run, including Sue Sission from the Brooks Landing store, who is a breast cancer survivor.

Under the team name Keep Calm and Save On, the runners each contributed $40 or raised $150 to participate in the CIBC run, which took place in Nanaimo. “So our team total will go up on race day,” said Sharon Little, team captain.

The CIBC announced Sunday, Oct. 4, that the Nanaimo run raised about $119,000 for The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
