Cowichan Sportsplex goes to the Vital Heart

The Cowichan Sportsplex is ready to unveil their new "Vital Heart" campaign, with a launch on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at noon at Scotiabank in Duncan.

The Sportsplex is partnering with the Cowichan Valley Basket Society for the fundraiser. Donations will be split 50/50.

"We were thrilled when the Sportsplex asked us if we would be interested in a campaign that would raise funds for both our societies," said Basket Society manager Colleen Fuller. "It makes sense to partner with someone who understands the importance of health and how important it is to help people to have healthy choices. Especially in these increased times of need, costs continue to go up and families are finding it more and more difficult to be able to meet basic needs. We need food bank donations but the monetary donations really go a long way."

Businesses and individuals are asked to donate $100 to the campaign. If they do they’ll have the chance to have the Vital Heart trophy featured in their organization. Participants will also receive a tote bag to fill with donations.
