She’s Bringing It Back!

The wake surf board has been dusted off, Rayburn’s Marine has stepped up with a Mastercraft and Aspire Health and Performance is making sure Susan has the stamina to get it done!

The wake surf will start in Vernon and finish in Penticton, this epic 135KM wakesurf is expected to take 10 hours with Susan only stopping 10 minutes every hour to hydrate and give her feet, ankles and quads a quick break!

What is Kids Care?

The Okanagan Kids Care Fund is “to benefit children of the Central Okanagan by identifying their special needs and requirements and then developing plans and programs to meet them.”

Kids Care is operated as a public service by Q103.1/Power 104 and area TD Canada Trust Bank branches with no operating costs associated to the charity—the partners pay all costs! Every dollar raised for Kids Care goes directly to designated projects. Kids Care began operations on May 5, 1995. Since then, the organization has raised about $1.4 million in support of children in the Okanagan.

Kids Care provides ongoing support of local food banks, and helped the Easter Seal Camp with construction and play equipment for disabled children. Provided funding for Reach Out Youth Counselling, the Central Okanagan Child Development Association, and CNIB. Raised funds to improve and equip the gymnasium facilities at the Westside Boys and Girls Club. Provided funds for Bankhead Learning Centre to help “At Risk” families and donated to the Kelowna General Hospital Adolescent Psychiatric Unit construction. Kids Care reached out to help Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre with much needed equipment including an aquatic wheelchair, and they hit the ball out of the park for Westside Softball Association purchasing softball equipment and batting cages.
