Funds raised from ride/run/walk stay in Tantra­mar re­gion

Sackville Tribune - - CLASSIFIEDS - BY WAL­LIE SEARS SPE­CIAL TO THE TRI­BUNE- POST

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.
