If you live somewhere near Mount Arrowsmith, there’s a chance the Arrowsmith Search and Rescue has made your life better.
Maybe they haven’t had to rescue you. But I’ll bet they’ve helped a friend, or a family member, or a neighbour.
Maybe they jumped in to help the fire department close to your house.
Maybe they’ve helped teach your kid how to be safe in the woods.
They’ve rescued lost hikers. They’ve used helicopters to airlift folks after they’ve been hurt on their quads and mountain bikes. They’ve brought home old folks with Alzheimer’s who went missing in the night.
They even dragged an unconscious man from the raging Little Qualicum River.
Why? Because they’re total badasses, that’s why.
And now it’s time for us to say thank you in the form of cold, hard cash.
In September, a generous donor will match all money we donate up to $20,000.
Yep. Someone out there (we don’t know who!) is ready to cough up twenty grand.
But only if we all do that as well.
