To the editor,
The Edgar J. Paradis Fund’s 20th Tour de la Vallee will be on Aug. 15.
For another successful event, we rely on a large number of volunteers to come forward and donate their time toward this worthy cause of raising money for cancer survivors.
Once again, the Tour de la Vallee committee is soliciting volunteers to provide coverage of several rest areas for the riders.
Duties will include the monitoring of food and assisting the rider with their snack or meal.
On behalf of the Paradis Fund, I encourage the public to consider spending time supporting this event where 100 percent of the money raised is designated to cancer survivor requests.
The Edgar J. Paradis Fund has been instrumental with defraying costs associated with travel for either the patient receiving treatments away from home or family member to be near the patient for support.
Cancer has affected the lives of each and every individual in the St. John Valley.
I would ask for you to consider the giving of your time for such an important service.
To volunteer, contact Allen Deeves at 834-1931 or Elaine Russell at 834-1824.
Allen Deeves, secretary, Edgar J. Paradis Fund
