Fernie Friends for Friends

“The donation received from 100WWCFernie will support local families during their battle with cancer as they go through the treatment process. It is a very special thing when a group like this gives back to local charities and groups that help people in our area. It will help to alleviate some of the concerns of finances in the initial stages of their treatment,” said Chris Moulton, Co-Founder of Fernie Friends for Friends.

Cycling without Age

“Cycling Without Age is thrilled with the recent donation from the 100 Women of Fernie. The excitement for our organization is really growing and we are delighted with the support from across the Fernie community. This donation will help us ensure we can confidently meet the needs of our seniors and other less-abled individuals to experience the amazing views around town from the comfort of our amazing trishaws,” said Melanie Wrigglesworth, Founder of Cycling Without Age.
