So wonderful of the kind folks of the Cowichan Valley Ride for Suicide Awareness to present this special event once again. Our Executive Director, Elizabeth Newcombe, accepts a cheque from Dave Vermaning (right) and Geoff Eng. The Ride was held on June 24, 2018, starting and ending at the Royal Legion Hall in Shawnigan Lake. Many thanks to Dave, Stacy Dean, Geoff, the Legion folks, and all the participants who helped increase suicide awareness in their community.
Matt Dunae, our Community Learning & Engagement Coordinator, was delighted to make a presentation about our Crisis Services and Community Programs in late May 2018 to the members of Unity Comox Valley. Reverend Vicki Vanderhorst also presented Matt with a generous donation. Our thanks to the Reverend and members of Unity Comox Valley for helping us help others in our Vancouver Island communities!
