Abbotsford’s Green Fighter Nicole Bradley will be at Kin’s Farm Market at South Fraser Way and Trethewey Street on Saturday, May 4, helping customers prepare fruit baskets for Mother’s Day.
She will be there as part of the latest Green Fighter’s challenge, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
With the help of Kin’s store staff, she will build a Mother’s Day fruit basket, as well as take basket orders for customers, which can be picked up on Mother’s Day weekend.
Kin’s will donate 10 per cent of all the fruit basket sales to the Canadian Cancer Society, up to $500.
The contestant whose store sells the most baskets during the entire day wins the challenge.
The 13-week contest kicked off March 1, and encourages competitors to adopt healthier lifestyles while raising money for cancer research.
“I knew I wanted to donate some of my time and volunteer at the (Canadian) Cancer Society because I had turned 22 and my dad had lost his arm to cancer when he was 22.”
Bradley – a dispatcher at Terralink Horticulture – also had a New Year’s resolution to get healthy and be more involved in the community.
“It kind of fit into both of those goals.”
