Safeway helps beat the drum

During the month of October, Safeway stores across Canada undertook a campaign for breast cancer research

During the month of October, Safeway stores across Canada undertook a campaign for breast cancer research and awareness in conjunction with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The month includes several fundraising efforts to support continued research to find a cure for this disease that affects many women and men.

One of the challenges was to sell Pin Up calendars and the Nelson Safeway was the winner of the District 2 challenge organized by Canada Safeway Corporate.

The Kootenay Rhythm Dragons and the Nelson Breast Cancer Support Group acknowledged the work of Nelson Safeway on October 20 and 21. They provided information about reducing risks through early detection, mammograms and local breast cancer support. In Nelson the Breast Friends support group meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Community’s First Health Co-op building (for more information contact Alice at 352-6223 or Nadine at 359-7777).

Kootenay Rhythm Dragons 2012 season was very successful participating in two Okanagan festivals. They finished in the Jade A Division in Penticton with their best time ever of 2.22.56 for the 500 metre race. If anyone is interested in joining the team for the next season, please contact Judy Sheppard at 352-3254, Dorothy Hatto at 551-3104 or Mary Walters at 352-3256.
