Thank Yous

We would never throw mud at The Comox Valley Potters Club and the Potters Place! These community minded artists spent lots of their time and talents on this long running $20 Chili Bowl fundraiser for YANA. Did you know 100% of the proceeds go to YANA Comox Valley from their Market Day event? Their neighbours Blue Spruce Ice Cream joined in the fun too by donating $3 ice cream tickets! Big messy sticky high fives to everyone!

Do you know who really rings our bells here at YANA? TELUS! They partnered with us and did a $25 donation for every Optik TV activation during their previous marketing campaign in the Comox Valley. They are a company that really cares about giving back to their community members. A large cheque was made for YANA families! Ring a ding, ding!

Big Kudos to Island BMW for hosting their first Annual Island BMW Motorrad Day up on Mount Washington. We were so thrilled that YANA Comox Valley was invited to be a part of this first time event! A cool $550 was raised. High fives all around (but not while driving your motorcycles -safety first people.)

YANA sure appreciates 10 year old Feodor.  While visiting his grandma in the Comox Valley he learned about YANA, and asked his grandma to take him into the bank. He decided to take out his own money for a YANA donation.  We think kids giving to kids is so fantastic!

Lucia turned eleven and chose to turn her Birthday celebration into a giving opportunity for YANA!  We are so lucky for Lucia’s kindness!  Big thanks to you, your friends and family.

Gratitude sent out to everyone who had fun at Kendrick’s Birthday Bash.  We so appreciate that it turned into such a wonderful fundraiser for YANA.  Well done Kendrick and guests!

Huge gratitude to our partners at Simon’s Cycles and to each cyclist, volunteer and sponsor who contributed to the Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride. Together we raised $70,000 for YANA families!

Sincere thanks to Simon Brampton and Patti Fletcher, recently retired owners of Simon’s Cycles. These community-minded bike-lovers came to YANA six years ago interested in co-hosting a cycling event that would bring hundreds of riders together each summer for the love of cycling and the love of community. Over a quarter of a million dollars has been raised since the first Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride and we are incredibly grateful!

Dr.Andreas Conradi is committed to caring! Did you know he has been top sponsor for the Simon’s Cycles YANA Ride since 2013? We are very grateful for the generous way in which he shows his love of cycling and his dedication to his community. Thank you!

Thank you to the Air Canada Foundation for gifting us two tickets anywhere Air Canada flies. We’re thrilled to be able to offer cyclists who fundraise $100 or more an opportunity to win such a fabulous prize. Special thanks to Air Canada pilot, Steve Dion, who coordinates this gift and congratulations to winner, Peter Donkers!
