Vanderhoof Community Foundation has raised over eight thousand dollars through their COVID-19 fitness challenge.
In a June 11 Facebook post, VCF said they raised $8,336.55 through a fitness challenge that ran for a month starting April 20.
Mary Burkholder from the Vanderhoof Community Foundation told the Express on April 24 that they had surpassed their goal of $2,020 on the second day of the event.
The purpose of the event was to boost the morale of people during COVID-19 whilst raising money to support the community.
There were close to seventy donors and participants from the community.
Funds raised from the event will be deposited into the Foundation’s Endowment Fund and the income earned from the fund will provide the organization with dollars to support local projects in the community, VCF’s website stated.
