The second annual Take Your Top Off for Tatas Charity Wheeling Event went spectacularly. We had about 120 off-roaders show up for the day and managed to raise $5025 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Take Your Top Off For Tatas is a charity off road event in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation BC/Yukon Division. We get together every July and take our tops off our Jeeps to raise funds and awareness. The event is open to all fully insured off-road vehicles and over the last three years the event has seen around 200 participants and raised over $12,000 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation BC/Yukon Division. Take Your Top Off For Tatas 2016 has been scheduled for July 24, 2016. Please stay tuned for updates.
In September of 2014 one of our biggest supporters lost her battle with cancer. There are no words to describe how inspirational Dana was. Her determination, positive attitude, and strength truly are awe inspiring. It is without a doubt that we can say Dana is the strongest person we have ever met and she will be greatly missed at next years event but we know she will be leading the run in spirit. Our deepest condolences go out to her beautiful little girl and her loving husband.
Event Day News
This years event is quickly approaching. We will be starting this year off with a Pancake breakfast at 9 am at Rivershore Chrysler followed by the Trail Ride, BBQ lunch, Silent Auction and Raffle.
We have opted to only run 1 trail ride this year, however for those who normally participate in the Sunday run we do have a separate section of the trail set aside for you.
We look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday!
In Loving Memory
In May of 2015 the Barnhartvale Community Association lost one of its longtime volunteers and friend. Sadly, Don lost his battle with Cancer. He will be greatly missed by all of us. Our deepest condolences to his wife Grace, his daughters Larissa and Emily and the rest of the family. Rest easy friend.
