Book sale for cancer research

 | March 9, 2012

To help raise funds for their Ride to Conquer Cancer, Joanne Foster and Bill Stoner have organized a book sale March 10 and 11, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Delta Sun Peaks Resort. Proceeds benefit the B.C. Cancer Foundation childhood and prostate cancer research programs.

“My goal is $3,200, so I was hoping to get between 1,000 and 1,500 books and see what I can sell out of that,” explains Foster.

Books may be dropped off at the Burfield Lodge and at the Sun Peaks Fire Hall, or donors can make arrangements with Foster or Stoner to have the books collected.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a two day, 250 kilometre bicycle ride commencing in Vancouver and ending in Seattle, June 16 and 17, 2012.
