Cranbrook Dodge and Dodge Boys make $10,000 tributePosted: August 13, 2012
Losing someone to cancer is never easy and for a family that has made the journey it is memories and the legacy of their loved one that becomes the most precious.
This week Dave Girling and his sales team at Cranbrook Dodge decided to honour Corinna Girling by presenting a tribute gift of $10,000 donation to East Kootenay Foundation for Health. The donation is earmarked for the A Clear View – digital mammography campaign as a legacy to the courage and strength demonstrated by Corinna during her cancer journey.
This gift is one of passion as earlier in the month, Dave and Cranbrook Dodge also presented over $11,000 for cancer research as part of its ongoing support of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign.
“There are moments that take your breath away when a person makes a gift to the campaign and also takes time to share their story. For Dave and I it was time to reflect on how special Corinna’s life was. The gift from Dave and his sales team was a touching gesture of the power of the human spirit,” explains EKFH’s Donna Grainger.
Whether it is to remember a loved one, honour the current journey of a cancer patient or simply because it makes a difference to the quality of health care we receive in the East Kootenay, the A Clear View ~ digital campaign is blessed by many gifts of support.
EKFH wishes to thank and recognize the Girling family and Cranbrook Dodge for supporting cancer care in the East Kootenay and cancer research nationally. This A Clear View is EKFH’s largest campaign ever; to make a financial gift and learn more visit us at www.aclearview.ca.
