And then there were two.

Corner Brook’s Maike van Niekerk is now one of two finalists in the Start Something with Alesse contest’s “start inspiring, non-profit”category.

If successful she plans to use the $5,000 prize to get her Katrin’s Karepackage project off the ground.

Van Niekerk wants to raise money to help with the travel expenses for people who have to go to St. John’s for radiation treatment.

The contest is being determined by online voting through Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/startsomethingwithalesse/app_230265790460757. Voting ends on March 3.
