Seniors walk for cancer

Silver Fox Run held at Castle Wood Village raises $4620 for cancer research.

The Queen of Castle Wood Village led the Silver Fox Walk held last week.

Seniors from all over the Kootenays joined the residents and staff of Castle Wood Village for a Silver Fox Run last Thursday. The event is a version of the Terry Fox Run geared for seniors. This is the second year Castle Wood has hosted a Silver Fox event. Participants had a choice of two routes, a short one around the Castle Wood property and a longer one through downtown Castlegar.

The approximately 200 participants from Castlegar, Fruitvale, Trail, Grand Forks and Nelson raised $4620 for cancer research. After the walk, there was a barbeque and dance featuring live music. Funds were also raised through a silent auction and bake sale.

The Castlegar Rebels were on hand serving refreshments, participating in the dance, posing for photos and walking the route with residents.
