Croquet for YANA kicked off YANA Week in the Schools. Many thanks to Christopher and Wendy Smith of Enecon Alberta for organizing this fun event. The rain stayed away long enough for the participants to really enjoy themselves.


The Comox Valley Pool League are a group that love to get together to share their passion for pool. They have a great time together and raise money for YANA at the same time. It’s a win – win for all, including our families who benefit from this generous spirit. Thank you!

Isfeld Secondary School teamed up with Meghan Hunt and Gloria Grieve to offer Zumba for YANA in April. It is awesome to see people turn their talent into community support. A shout out to Brenda Hunt who is often in the background helping to make these beautiful things happen!

Thanks to Nancy Clarke of CIBC Wood Gundy for her annual contribution through her work and the CIBC Children’s Foundation. You are making a positive difference in our community!

The Comox Valley Division of Family Practice see firsthand the impact that YANA has on local families. Thanks for your donation in support of our cause.

Milagro Retreats held a Spring Renewal event at Mt. Washington and shared the participants’ tuition with YANA. What a great way to stay healthy and to help Comox Valley children get healthy.  Your support is much appreciated!


Easter Eggstravaganza was a great event offering lots of family fun at Marina Park. Many thanks to Investors Group who organized the event with support and additional sponsorship from Comox Recreation, Quality Foods, Marc Villaneuva and Superstore. What an egg-cellent collaboration!

It is fantastic to be recognized by provincial government and municipal employees. Donations were received from the Provincial Government Employee Community Service Fund and from the City of Courtenay Pay It Forward Fundraiser.

April saw our first Kids’ Clutter Sale after Chelsey Newton handed over to YANA. Many thanks to Chelsey and her parents for this gift. A big thank you to our new coordinator, Tanya Del Bianco, as well to all the other volunteers, sellers and buyers who made our first sale a big success. We’ll see you in October for the Fall Sale.

Thank you to the Comox Valley Kennel Club for making a donation to YANA.
