Apr 5 2017 - Throw for Dave” Raises Funds and Breaks Records
The Stade Vance-Toner in the CEPS at the Université de Moncton was the location for Athletics New Brunswick’s “Throw for Dave” meet this past weekend. The event was hosted as a fundraiser to help out Dave Jefferson, long time ANB official and masters athlete, who recently lost everything in an apartment fire. The event raised over $1000 to help Dave out, and an on-line auction is also being run to contribute to the cause.
Executive Director of ANB, Gabriel LeBlanc, was very happy to see so many people out to support this great cause. “Dave has done a lot for our organization over the years as one of our great officials, so it was nice to be able to repay him in some way for his many years of service,” stated LeBlanc. “He has been through a pretty traumatic experience and we hope that this will, in some small way, help him to get back on his feet. It is a pleasure for us to help someone in our track community in their time of need,” he added.
Several new masters records were established at the meet as well. The records included:
SP W45-49 5.33m Tracy Dunn (SJTC)
SP W50-54 8.55m Valerie Bérubé
SP W55-59 7.27m Heather LeBlanc
