Event support Canuck Place Children's Hospice

Staff at Kryton International Inc. are holding their annual “gender challenge” this month to raise funds for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

The company, which provides concrete waterproofing systems around the world, is sponsoring the agency’s Light up their Lives Campaign, which involves selling sponsorship to decorate the hospice in Vancouver.

The genders are battling it out in some friendly competition, raising funds through direct donations, fundraising activities and a contribution from the company.

Kryton donated $2,500 to this year’s campaign, lighting up 500 lights on Canuck Place in Vancouver, as well as donating concrete waterproofing product to the new facility under construction in Abbotsford.
