Last year raised an incredible amount and we are excited to see what 2019’s event brings,” said Veronica Carroll, CEO at Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island.

Keep an eye out for Foundation staff and volunteers helping thank everyone for filling up on Fuel Good Day. To pay it forward, one lucky customer will win two airline tickets to anywhere in the world WestJet flies.
