Funds raised from ride/run/walk stay in Tantramar region
A small group of local residents joined hands recently to raise funds for the Tantramar Breast Cancer Organization, with money being used in the immediate region.
The Ride/run/walk for Pink event consisted of an organized 20-km bike ride or 5-km walk or run, that used the Jagged Journey Breast Cancer Awareness Tees to raise money for the organization.
Funds will provide improved access to services and financial help for people from the Tantramar region.
Ethan Crossman, founder of the brand Jagged Journey, was pleased to partner with Emilie Comfort, Mount Allison University’s Health Matters Society chair for this special event.
“The three main words that Jagged Journey lives by are challenge, adversity and success,” said Crossman, a member of the Memorial Cup champion Acadie- Bathurst Titan earlier this year. “These are three words that may come to mind when put in difficult situations.”
Also assisting in the event were the Tantramar Outdoors Club and the Kookie Kutter bakery.
While the annual Mount Allison-sackville Relay for Life event held in October has been cancelled, Mount Allison students, primarily, will be holding one in March. Anyone from the Tantramar region can participate in the March event.
Approximately 30 individuals from Mount Allison University and the town of Sackville came out to support the recent Ride/run/walk for Pink fundraising event.
