MADD Kimberley Cranbrook plans event

Krista Lynn MADD Dash scheduled for January 26, 2013

The MADD chapter of Kimberley Cranbrook is looking to raise their profile and some funds with an event planned  for Saturday, January 26, 2013.

The first annual Krista Lynn MADD Dash will be a fun day of skiing and snowboarding says Katryna Sigurdson of MADD, with games, a barbecue lunch, door prizes, silent auction and more.

Tickets, which include lift passes are $80 for adults, $65 for  youth 13-17, $50 for under 12 and $30 for those who have annual passes or just want to come support and not ski.

For information and pledge forms, you can contact Sigurdson at 250-432-9590. Tickets are available in Cranbrook at Core Fitness and Bridge Interiors, and  in Kimberley at Bear’s Eatery and Guest Services at Kimberley Alpine Resort.

MADD Kimberley/Cranbrook officially launched its first ever red ribbon campaign in the two communities on November 1. They will be distributing red ribbons throughout the holiday season, and will continue into the new year, bringing awareness to the fight against drinking and driving.
