The 2017 edition of the Prairie Women on Snowmobiles Mission has wrapped up.
One of the participants was Yorkton’s own, Karla Gervais-Ukrainetz, who says the six-day trek only had one minor setback.
“Our trip was supposed to be 14-hundred kilometres; we only did 1-thousand” she said, “we ran out of snow”.
In spite of that, Gervais says the non-profit organization raised $144,406.36 for breast cancer research and medical equipment in health facilities across Saskatchewan.
Gervais says many members of her family have been touched by cancer.
“I did it a lot for them, and hopefully we could kiss cancer goodbye forever one day.”
Every year, the group makes a 6-day trek across Saskatchewan.
