Darlene Thomas again raising funds for Hope Air with Wheel-a-Thon

The service is for people of all ages with a wide range of illnesses and last year alone provided over 4,000 flights to British Columbians. Since it launched its mission in 1986, the nation-wide number of assistance flights is up to 78,000.

For several years now, Darlene has been among the beneficiaries of Hope Air, as her travel is not covered by the provincial Medical Services Plan, and without the free service would be a major obstacle on her path to recovery. 

Last year she raised $700 dollars, and this year is hoping to double that amount by holding another Wheel-a-Thon at the walking track at the Pomeroy Sport Centre. It starts tomorrow afternoon 2 p.m. and pledges can be made at the walking track or online at www.hopeair.ca.
