Comox Valley gives back

Jan Kotyk raised $5,125 for the Children’s Health Foundation by way of a 12-hour “stepathon” at the Goose Spit stairs. The Merville ultra-marathoner started climbing the stairs at 4 a.m. on Jan. 9 and continued until 4 p.m. For the most part, he would walk up and run down. He is pictured here at the Goose Spit stairs with his wife Erin and son Asher.Jan Kotyk raised $5,125 for the Children’s Health Foundation by way of a 12-hour “stepathon” at the Goose Spit stairs.

In October for Tara’s Birthday week celebration The Comox Box donated 15 per cent of each sale towards the Comox Valley Transition Society Warming Centre located in Courtenay. We’re happy to say that we raised $610, more than double the 2020 amount. Giving back is important to us and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without all your support; thank you!In October for Tara’s Birthday week celebration The Comox Box donated 15 per cent of each sale towards the Comox Valley Transition Society Warming Centre located in Courtenay.
