Relay at Home 2020

This year several the REALM Rovers and even some new members took part in the Canadian Cancer Society RELAY at HOME event. People walked in their homes, their neighbourhoods, and/or at the College of the Rockies Track Field.  Everyone who signed up appreciated the opportunity to enjoy the walk, the beautiful day, and contribute to a fight they believe in, with more than 128,000 other Canadians. Everyone on the team is missing the opportunity to participate and travel to Saskatoon this year, they are all looking forward to the future and joining teams hopefully next year whether be in Saskatoon, or Las Vegas or another community. Everyone enjoyed having their photo taken with the Relay Banton.

Featured in Kootenay Business – Java Creek Café offers employment to intellectually disabled people through REALM

Many Kootenay businesses are facing difficulty these days due to labour shortages in the area. Unbeknownst to many Kootenay employers, there’s an untapped job force out there that is being underutilized. For some, like the intellectually disabled, they want to work but haven’t been given an opportunity to contribute.
