WRW funds young torch relay runners
This news was received from Carole Gair, coach of White Rock Wave:
White Rock WAVE masters swim, a club of about 35 members have donated over $700 to buy the torches that will be carried by two brothers whose 9 year old sister passed away from liver cancer on Jan.11, 2010. When the team heard another master swimmer, Kim (Austin) Smith had arranged through the torch relay people to fit the two boys into the schedule in Ft. Langley on Jan. 8 to honour their sister, an email went out to the WAVE members to help pay the $800 cost of the torches as a memento for the brothers. Within one week the club donated nearly the total amount.
