WINNIPEG – It’s a marathon of music with all proceeds going directly to charity.

Manitoba band The Treble is playing 24 shows in 24 hours starting Thursday 9 p.m.

The acoustic sets will take place all around Winnipeg with stops at various businesses and landmarks.

This isn’t the first time The Treble has done a show like this. The band has raised more than $8,000 in previous shows for The Canadian Red Cross and Winnipeg Harvest.

This year the boys decided to choose a cause close to their hearts, CancerCare Manitoba. Cancer affects nearly every Manitoban in one way or another.

A few locations will also be selling food on Dec. 11 and 12 with proceeds going to the cause.
