Endless Adventures Fundraising campaign for the West Kootenay Search and Rescue Training weekend was a huge success. Endless Adventure  raised $2,000  to help support and alleviate the pressure on volunteers who occasionally need to use their own funds for training and equipment.

At the Saturday-night dinner, Andrea and Chris presented Gord and Barb Ihlen, of the Castlegar Society for Search and Rescue (CSAR), a cheque, some prizes and equipment for the weekend training. Gord of CSAR went on to thank Chris and Andrea for their endless support throughout the year for all Kootenay-based Search and Rescue associations.

Chris and Andrea also arranged for a Slocan River Adventure for the family members of volunteers attending the training weekend.

“Volunteers that do search and rescue provide this region with a much-needed service and if there is anything we can do to encourage, inspire and help we are there,” Chris said.

Along with the fundraising efforts, there was a photo contest that featured recreation safety awareness contest that had an amazing response; even prize sponsors such as Kokanee Mountain Zipline showcased their safety features.

The message to everyone – Have fun outdoors and be safe!
