How to Get Involved
For more information about any of these events, please contact Michelle Roberge of the Vanderhoof Community for Kids at 250-567-6930 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vanderhoof Community for Kids was established in 1992 by Jean Moutray and Christine Moutray, sisters-in-law who felt compelled to help the hospital that rehabilitated Jean's daughter, Helen, after she was critically injured in a car accident. Over the years the duo put on many fundraising events with the help of countless friends and volunteers in the community.
In 2010 Jean and Chris handed over the reins to Michelle Roberge and Corleen McNolty, both of whom are moms far too familiar with BC Children's Hospital. Michelle and Corleen, along with dedicated volunteers, plan to continue fundraising in Vanderhoof for BC Children's Hospital for years to come.
