The Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club has raised approximately $49,000 for the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation and Advanced Stroke Care.
The goal was to raise $20,000, and the club was shocked when it was able to more than double it.
The ski club and Kelowna General Hospital are looking to partner again for more success next year.
“In a year of pandemic, when other charities are struggling, this is a feel good story of how a bunch of cross country skiers and snowshoers took it upon themselves to push their distances on their own to raise funds,” Kelowna Nordic Ski and Snowshoe Club director Lyle Nicholson said.
