Ironman fundraiser reaches halfway mark

Two associates from Pan Pacific Whistler (and two husbands of associates) will be competing in Ironman Canada on July 27.

Not content with just running in the race, they have also set themselves a target of raising $10,000 for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice! On June 10 we held a fundraiser and silent auction at Creekbread where we raised over $1,900.

Added to the donations we have already received we are now half way to our target with all proceeds going directly to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.

First, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to Creekbread for hosting us and providing an avenue such as this with which to raise funds for good local causes. Second, we would like to thank the following partners for their generous donations which made the silent auction so successful: Pan Pacific Whistler, Whistler Day Spa, Salomon Store, Helly Hansen, Whistler Bungee, Scandinave Spa, Nicklaus North Golf Club, Adventure Group – SuperFly Ziplines, Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub, Longhorn Saloon and Tapleys Pub, Whistler Tasting Tours, Whistler Eco Tours, Ziptrek EcoTours, Bounce Whistler, the Meet Your Maker team and Lisa Geddes.

Finally, we would like to thank everyone who came out on the evening to enjoy pizza, to bid on the silent auction and donate to such a worthy cause.

 You can find us on Facebook (Pan Pacific Whistler Ironmen for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice) or follow us on Twitter (@ppwironmen) to keep up to date with our progress and future fundraising events, including a Spinathon in Village Square on June 27.

Once again, thank you all!

Zoé Martin,
on behalf of the Pan Pacific Whistler Ironmen Team
