We are so proud of Vice President Mary Burkholder as she has been the recipient of a Local Hero Award from Centerra Gold: Mt Milligan. She was the genius behind our Covid 2020 Fitness Challenge Event which helped our organization raise over $8,000 and provided an opportunity for the community to get active during a period when many events and activities had been cancelled.
Centerra Gold presented Mary with a bouquet of flowers and gifts certificates to local businesses: Earthenware and Omineca Sports. In addition, they generously donated $300 to the Vanderhoof Community Foundation to help support our fundraising, so it was a win/win/win all the way round.
Thank you Mary for your dedication to our organization and thank you Centerra Gold for honouring our Local Hero!
