Canadian TV personality Rick Mercer was in Prince George on Monday to pay tribute to the students of UNBC for their efforts in the Spread the Net Student Challenge.
UNBC students raised $18,710 for the Spread the Net Student Challenge. The money will purchase pesticide-treated bed nets which will be distributed in Africa to reduce the spread of malaria by infection-carrying mosquitos.
Footage from the events will appear on The Rick Mercer Report on March 29.
At the rally Mercer had students, faculty and community members dancing, cheering, singing and doing the wave to the tune of Not Ready to Go by The Trews.
The celebration culminated outside with camera crews filming the crowd from a helicopter.
The Spread the Net Student Challenge raised a total of $102,641.93 nationwide between September and the end of February. A total of 19 college and universities -- including UBC, Simon Fraser University, the University of Alberta and University of Ottawa -- and 40 high schools took part in the effort.
