Kaempf drops off running challenge donations

Three charities pick up $1,000 each.

Amy Kaempf topped off her running challenge journey on November 17, by dropping off her three $1,000-donations to her chosen charities. Kaempf completed a two-day running challenge October 24, which saw her run four miles every four hours for two days, and she raised $3,000 in the process. 

The three donations were made to the Dawson Creek Senior's Hall, the Nawican and Bergeron Youth Cultural Centre, and the Dawson Creek Public Library. 

"We are thrilled to receive this donation, which will be put towards our youth-focused programs. Building relationships and gaining trust with the teenagers in our community is important to us," said Jannah Kohlman, executive director of the NBYCC.

"All children deserve a safe place to come hang out. We very much appreciate this."

The library is putting its donation toward the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. 

"It's amazing to have someone think of us when they are fundraising. It's such a great thing for all the kids in our community to receive a free book until the age of five," said library manager Pam Morris.

Fay Clease of the Seniors Hall said that she was thrilled with the tremendous support from the community of Dawson Creek.
