Dawson Creek residents sent to “jail” in Cancer Society fundraiser

Posted on

first_imgOnce “incarcerated”, the prisoners must raise enough money to “make bail”, with all proceeds going towards pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes, a summer recreation program that provides a unique summer experience for children and teens with cancer and their families.The perps are being held at the Lake View Credit Union parking lot, but you can hardly call it “hard time”. While locked up they’re being served pizza courtesy of Boston Pizza, and hot dogs and hamburgers thanks to Rock Water Energy Solutions. They will also receive gift cards to Mr. Mike’s and Browns Social House, and will be entered to win tickets to a regimental dinner on September 12. The Jail and Bail was first held in Dawson Creek in 2011, and last year’s event was considered another success.- Advertisement –last_img read more

DONEGAL SPORTS PARTNERSHIP LAUNCH ‘GO FOR LIFE GAMES’ IN INISHOWEN

Posted on

first_imgAge and Opportunity Ireland and Go for Life have been providing opportunities for our older population to participate in sport and physical activity games for the past decade and have again developed an adapted games programme for older adults.With the support of the Donegal Sports Partnership and the Health Promotion Department of the HSE the first ever leader training for Go for Life Games was delivered in the Greencastle Community Centre today Wednesday by Go for Life Senior Tutor Frank Fahey.Thirty six leaders participated in the practical games training from community groups from Muff, Moville, Malin, Greencastle, Clonmany and Culdaff and these groups will now look to develop participation in their own communities. The game names of Flisk, Lobbers and Scidil may not be familiar to people in Donegal but through the work of the support agencies it is hoped that through time many of our older population will have an awareness of this exciting games programme.Dublin City University was the host centre for last year’s Go for Life Games national celebration and it is hoped that for 2015 that Donegal will have a representative team.Further information on the programme is available from Karen Guthrie, Community Sports Development Officer at Donegal Sports Partnership and also via the Age and Opportunity web page www.ageandopportunity.ie   DONEGAL SPORTS PARTNERSHIP LAUNCH ‘GO FOR LIFE GAMES’ IN INISHOWEN was last modified: October 31st, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL SPORTS PARTNERSHIPFeaturesGet go gamesnewsNoticesSportlast_img read more
