A huge thank you goes out to the Delta Whistler Village Suites' Raise the Roof event this past summer, which raised $16,000 and Scotiabank, who matched some contributions for another $2,000. The total raised was $18,000 to help fund programs and equipment for 2019. Thank you to all this who came out to the event. Your support will make a big difference!
Also, thank you to our Ironman volunteers who helped run 3 support tents for the Ironman race in Whistler this past July. With our volunteer attendance at the race, we also raised $3,500 of race donations for Whistler Adaptive. Your support is invaluable, and greatly appreciated.
