Canadian Cancer Society

Canadian Cancer Society Logo

Mission Statement:  The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) is the only national charity that supports all people with all cancers in communities across the country.  Working as a national organization allows us to operate more efficiently and ensure donor dollars are spent effectively. And advancements benefit all Canadians, regardless of where they live.

CSS is a collective of people united by the same goals.  This includes people with cancer, their families, friends and healthcare teams, as well as donors, scientists, advocates, volunteers and partner organizations.

CCS knows that cancer can change a lot of things.  They know that for people with cancer and their families, life is more than a diagnosis.  That’s why CSS are always looking for ways to improve the cancer experience by helping people live longer and enhancing their quality of life.  CSS is here to help and support people live their lives more fully, because they believe that life is bigger than cancer.

You can help make a difference – our vision to create a world where no Canadian fears cancer is only achievable if we work collectively with people united by the same goals.

North Peace Bracket Racing Association

NPBRA Logo

Mission Statement: To provide a safe, fun, family friendly environment to promote drag racing.

Vision Statement: We hope to grow as an organization through members, and the youth who will hopefully take over as they get older.

Time to Burn RubberIf you live in the peace region and like the smell of burnt rubber, exhaust and watching fast cars then you more than likely already know about the North Peace Bracket Racing Association. The volunteer driven non-profit is an active part of the community for the past 27 seasons. Their Drag Races are held at the Pat’s Auto Supply Motorsports Park, located at the Beaverlodge Airport, which the group recently purchased, Bracket Event Director Derek Falconer states “The facility is beautifully maintained by our volunteers, and still serves as a private airport.” He continues “Without volunteers we simply would not exist. We have no paid employees; we depend entirely on our wonderful volunteers.”

Volunteers clean the track after a spillThe race season runs from May to September in that time volunteers help with the races setup and take down of the track, selling memorabilia, fundraisers and more. The group also works with A&W to raise money for the MS Society and local charities.  They also hold the annual Spring Spectacular Indoor Car Show & Swap Meet in April at the TARA Centre. NPBRA volunteers also come together to support the community at various events like the County of Grande Prairie Weed Warriors and cleanup programs.
