Alberta Connection to Clipper Around the World Yacht Race

Posted By Jennifer Handley, April 5, 2014

Like sailing? Don't like cancer? That's the way it is for Fiona Garforth-Bles who works at the Tom Baker cancer clinic in Calgary. Fiona has signed up for two legs of the Clipper Round the World Yacht race and is raising money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation Clinical Trials Research Unit. You can read more here http://www.rockyviewweekly.com/article/20140217/RVW1101/302179978/-1/RVW/bragg-creek-resident-takes-the-helm-for-race and donate to her cause. Details about where to donate are in the article. (With thanks to Calgary Vice Commodore, Alastair Handley, for drawing attention to this opportunity to support a great cause.)
