PLEA's Whistler 50 Relay Team run the extra mile for our Holiday Hamper Campaign

Event Date: 
October 19, 2015

On Saturday Jordon Tyson, Wilf Leung, Arnel Gabriel, Andrew Hargrave, Mike Jeffreys, Gio Del Castillo, Matt Davidson, David Doucette (PLEA Team 1), Sean Easton, Lillian Cho, Kate Crowley, Kevin Taylor, Eric Buchi, Eric McGoldrick, Paul Jones, Sheri Lukawesky (PLEA Team 2) and not forgetting Paul Gordon (who ran the whole 80km by himself!) teamed up to run the Whistler 50 Relay to raise money for our Holiday Hamper campaign.

Both teams did extremely well with many individuals improving on their times from previous years. PLEA Team 1’s cumulative time of 08:15:39 put them 116th of 140. PLEA Team 2 managed a cumulative time of 07:50:31 and came in 88th of 140. Arnel ran the fastest time out of the 16. Paul’s individual time was an amazing 09:57:20.

A big thank you to all the partners and friends that supported our runners on the day, and a special thank you to Michelle Cherak for supporting her husband Paul by carrying his supplies back and forth for the duration of his run, as well as cheering him on.

Last year the team raised enough money for us to provide 200 hampers to families living in the Lower Mainland. We are on target to do the same if not more for this year! If you would like to help us in this aim by making a last minute donation you can do so by cash, cheque (made payable to PLEA Community Services Society of BC) or online.
