Had the pleasure to have 2 amazing people in the AIR 106.1 studio this morning. The President of Search and Rescue Alberta, Shane Elder and the President and K9 (canine) Handler of Cochrane Search and Rescue, Andy Potton looped us in about how hard they have to raise money as it's a completely non-for-profit Association and all volunteer.
They need to fundraise a minimum of $25,000 per year just to cover costs. They are also looking for a permanent home they can store all their equipment and train...an acreage outside of Cochrane would be perfect.
If you can volunteer or help in any way they would love to hear from you at either www.cochranesearchandrescue.org
I'm so thankful they do what they do.
