Active First Aid recently donated a small amount of time and equipment to provide first aid coverage at the Surrey Quest Adventure Race, which was held on Jan 30, 2010 in South Surrey. Hosted by the City of Surrey, the event was a huge success featuring series of challenges to be completed by teams of 4 with divisions for youth, families and adults to compete in. Competitors raised pledges ahead of time for Right to Play, and Olympian spokespersons for the organization came out to show their support. Other sponsors of the event provided prizes and signs and participants had a great time! Luckily, injuries were few and the fundraising, phenomenal!
