Cars 4 COVID cruises Saturday in Campbell River

Cars 4 COVID cruises have so far raised more than $6,500 to help those on the frontline and others who are working through the coronavirus pandemic.

Last Saturday’s event in Courtenay drew about 40 cars.

More than 100 participants are expected at the next event, Saturday, June 6 in Campbell River. Meet at 6 p.m. the Campbell River Sportsplex.

Cars will leave at 6:50 p.m. for the hospital. The route goes up 2nd Avenue to include Yucalta Lodge. It then turns right on Dogwood and heads downtown to 13th Avenue, where it turns left towards the Campbell River Commons to pass by the Lions Club, then right onto Ironwood and right onto 16th Avenue. Then it’s a left onto Robert’s Reach Road to drive by Berwick, then a quick left onto Highway 19A to finish at the A&W at the Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre.

We ask that you park in every second parking spot for social distance issues.

If you wish to donate, please purchase a Cars4Covid sticker for a minimum donation of $5. Proceeds support the UBC/VGH COVID research fund.
