With Jeff Scott’s recent win of one of three mobility-modified vans came another hurdle. He needs to raise $12,000 to cover import fees and duties to get the van back to Canada.
On June 22, 2013, the Burns Lake Nadina Fire District unit crew held a charity car wash to help raise that money. Jeff Scott, a popular firefighter, had been living his snowboarding dreams in Revelstoke as a member of the fire management branch there when he broke his back in a terrible snowboarding accident three years ago. Since then, he co-founded the Live it! Love it! Foundation, which connects disabled men and women with the outdoor adventures they otherwise might have lost forever.
The new van will help Scott with his work in the foundation. Donations continue to be accepted through the Burns Lake unit crew headquarters in Burns Lake.
Bidding is also open on one seven-hour day of labour from the 20 person unit crew. If you need some heavy lifting or other work done and want to help the Live it! Love it! foundation, give Patrick Birch a call at the unit base: 250-692-3190.
