Clements Centre thanks Santa

On behalf of the Clements Centre Society I wish to extend my sincere gratitude for the terrific turnout at the 2015 Run for the Claus.

On behalf of the Clements Centre Society I wish to extend my sincere gratitude for the terrific turnout at the 2015 Run for the Claus. Over 300 energetic souls braved the elements; donned Santa Claus suits and participated in a three-kilometre stomp or six-kilometre run through the streets of Duncan, all in support of the Centre.

The warm-up festivities and the finish line nourishment were an added bonus. Again, I wish to thank the many volunteers who stepped up to care for us and the sponsors who provided much needed energy. It’s difficult to acknowledge everyone, but a few notables come to mind, including:

• Alan and Allison Crisp

• Adrian, Chantal, Justin and Mackenzie of WestCoast Prefab

• Ashley Crisp of Mint Holdings

• Ian Clarke at Island Kung Fu

• Purica Recovery and the Watkins family

• Starbucks Coffee and its Duncan Manager, Heather Smith

• The Lazenby family

• Macdonalds of Duncan

• Norm Jackson and his inimitable emcee role

• Terry Shepard and the Rotary Club of Duncan for road marshalling

• Warm-up exercise program by Morne Van Niekerk

• Carol and Terry Stenberg

• John Dewer of Maxxam Insurance

• The supportive team at Staples-Duncan

• Experience Cycling

The tremendous outpouring of community support is impressive and contagious. As we look forward to 2016 let’s encourage many more friends and family to join in this fun-filled jaunt.

If you’re in the neighbourhood, please don’t hesitate to drop into our centre. I welcome the chance to show you how we assist children and youth with developmental needs and adults with developmental disabilities reach their full potential.

I am pleased to report that, with our community’s continued support we are better able to help the people we serve.
