On July 20th the Midway Public Library is sponsoring the 4th annual JLB Memorial Kettle River Run to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation of the Southern Interior.

According to a letter sent to Greenwood Council by library director Stephanie Boltz last year they raised approximately $10,000 for patient care and this year they have set a target of $12,000.

“Hope for the people that journey the lonely road through cancer costs money,” wrote Boltz. “We can help put that burden behind them.

She said that people often want to help but sometimes are not sure how or even where their money goes. “We structured this event so that the money stays local and is distributed to patients through the BC Cancer Foundation,” she explained.

They have a website where registration and pledge forms may be found. There is a volunteer form as well for those who would like to help with the run.

Registrations can be dropped off at the Midway Public Library, mailed in or brought to the registration table on the evening of Friday, July 19 when you can join other runners for a spaghetti dinner for the registered participants (other family members can pay a donation).

The annual run raises funds to assist those burdened by cancer. It is held in memory of library director Stephanie Boltz’s late husband John Lester Boltz.
