Drumheller’s first Float for a Cure was a stag­ger­ing suc­cess, as or­ga­niz­ers do­nated a $7,505 cheque to the Drumheller Health Cen­tre’s Com­mu­nity Can­cer Cen­tre on Tues­day morn­ing. “I see it get­ting even big­ger next year,” said or­ga­nizer Shel­ley Bixby, say­ing the all funds came from only 30 floaters.. The do­na­tion in­cludes $1,000 from West- ern Fi­nan­cial, and is ear­marked for pa­tient care and com­fort at the can­cer cen­tre. Pic­tured from left are or­ga­niz­ers Betty Farmer, Shel­ley and Bud Bixby, foun­da­tion sec­re­tary Linda Ames, and RNs Wendy Poole and Tammy Calderon.
