B.C. Forest Service supports Quesnel community with Terry Fox Run donations

The B.C. Forest Service donated bottles and cans from Quesnel Airport camp to locals raising funds for cancer research.

The B.C. Forest Service has donated bottles from the camp at Quesnel’s airport to Team Family Fun for the Terry Fox Run. The total raised from the camp’s bottle donation was $377.45.

Team Family Fun said: “These fire fighters not only came from all across Canada and around the world to help us, they also wanted to give back to the community by donating their recyclable bottles to our fundraiser.

“We want to thank them for their donation and for all their work.”
