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.
