Supoort workers, family and friends of Barb Wilson on ALS Awareness Day

ALS awareness in Burns Lake

Friends and supporters gathered at LDSS track on June 10, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and walked few laps in support of the cause. The “Move to Cure ALS” walk happens across B.C. in June and although Burns Lake isn’t an official site, Burns Lake resident Ronda Payne held a walk and a fundraiser for the cause to show her support for her friend, Barb Wilson. For the third year in a row Payne has been raffling off a beautiful quilt – this year’s quilt is named When you Wish Upon a Star. It was made by Jenny Pirie.
