The Dollars for Darbi Bootcamp Fundraiser was a great success! Thanks to all of you who came out to support our local girl who is fighting to get back her life as a UVIC student, athlete and Sport Chek employee. Also, thank you to those of you who were not able to join us but donated anyway. A big shout out to Monni Savory for organizing and hosting the Bootcamp. Monni reported, “The grand total for tonight’s Bootcamp was $850! “ Way to go Cowichan Community : )
As you may already know Darbi has been stricken by an auto immune disease known as Guillain-Barré Syndrome. She is at VGH working hard to regain her muscle control.
The money has been given to Darbi’s mom who will hold for Darbi to put toward her expenses as she gains her mobility and returns to school, although she has a long road ahead of her.
