"We thought that this would be a tremendous event to be a part of. We are currently looking at revamping some of our charity efforts over the next couple of years and this fits the bill perfectly! All proceeds from the event are going right back into the community, with funds going to support the new Centre for Active Living in the curling rink at Centennial Arena. We couldn't be more excited to know that we will be helping such an amazing project be successful", said Eric Kameka of the White Rock Fire Fighters Charity.
An expansion of the Peace Arch Hospital's Cardiac Rehabilitation program, the Centre for Active Living will directly benefit people with chronic illness such as diabetes, arthritis, and congestive heart failure. It's aim is to slow the progression of chronic disease and to expedite recovery and improve outcomes after surgery. The 12,000 sq. ft. Centre will include two new fitness rooms, two exercise studios and an education room.
The White Rock Fire Fighters will be one of the three main sponsors for Lobster Fest, along with Scotiabank and Surrey Honda.
