MONASHEE UNIT CREW RAISES $2200 FOR THE LIVE IT! LOVE IT! FOUNDATION!
Revelstoke B.C.- The 5th Annual Fire Fighters Hard Labour Auction concluded last Friday raising $2200 for the Live it! Love it! Foundation. The highest bidders were Bette Todd and Bud Mackenzie from Revelstoke B.C. The couple set all 20 crewmembers to work for 8 hours spacing timber and landscaping their property near Mars Creek. The crew is currently in Revelstoke working on a fuel management project near Begbie Falls and headed out to complete the auction work during a day off this last Saturday.
The Live it! Love it! Foundation was created by Monashee Unit Crew member Jeff Scott and his partner Izzy Lynch after Jeff sustained a spinal cord injury last spring. Jeff spent the last year in the hospital recovering as well as exploring the limits of what is possible in with his injured body. As a quadriplegic Jeff has bungee jumped, sit skied, dog sledded, participated in wheelchair rugby and traveled across Canada promoting the Live it! Love it! Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to get athletes with new spinal injuries out and active; to inspire through adventure. The foundation will be facilitating this by hosting an adventure camp for paraplegics and quadriplegics this fall in Whistler. In addition, they will be establishing bursaries to help people with spinal injuries afford the equipment they need to participate in sport.
The Live it! Love it! Foundation continues to accept donations through the website at www.liveitloveit.org.
