Generous Donation Made By Courtenay Family Chiropractic

In 2011, Courtenay Family Chiropractic started a fund raising campaign to help support YANA. Early in 2014, they decided they should tally up the funds and make the donation happen. Much to their surprise, and the grateful delight of YANA, the total was an impressive $10,130.

Dr. Marnie Grant and Dr. Ken Heinrich (right) are presenting the cheque to YANA (Kris Johnson, left) on behalf of their team. Thank you so much for this incredible donation, it will support so many of the families who need to leave the Comox Valley for their child’s medical needs.

Dr. Ken Heinrich and Dr. Marnie Grant from Courtenay Chiropractic have recently focused their fund raising efforts on YANA. They regularly conduct complimentary spinal check-ups at various health expos in the Comox Valley and donate 100% of all fees collected for in-office check-ups that arise from these community events to charity.  Wow, what a great way to share your talent and passion!  Thank you!

Comox Valley Taxi has embarked on a unique way to raise money for YANA families. Since mid-December they have donated $1 for every trip to or from the Comox Airport. Those dollars really add up!

Both the Comox and Courtenay Fire Departments extended the holiday spirit by chipping Christmas trees in exchange for donations to YANA.  Thanks for your ongoing giving spirit.

Sweet Matthew asked for donations to YANA for his 9th Birthday. Matthew knows how YANA helps kids because his proud Mom, Marcie Dumais, is our Executive Director and is a constant example to her boys of how one person can make a difference.

Speaking of birthdays, Cumberland United Church congregation take birthday donations throughout the year and then generously donate them to YANA.

Kai Davenport donated his birthday money to YANA and so did Olie and Jasch Phillips (seen in photo).  We love hearing about these fun birthday parties and seeing kids helping kids.
