Global TV news anchor, Steve Darling (pictured above), was the MC at our launch, held on Wednesday November 18th at the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam. A keen supporter of both Operation Red Nose and our beneficiary, KidSport, Steve introduced the key speakers at the event.
These included: Coquitlam City Councillor, Dennis Marsden, Inspector Bryon Massie from the RCMP’s Coquitlam detachment, Kathleen Nadalin, ICBC’s Road Safety Coordinator, as well as Chris Wilson, Operation Red Nose Chairperson (Tri-Cities, New Westminster and Burnaby).
2015 marks the 20th annual ORN campaign in BC and an estimated 300 volunteers from our specific areas are expected to hit the road to ensure as many people as possible get a safe ride home.
The 2015 campaign also marks an important chapter in the history of Operation Red Nose across Canada, since the organization will reach the impressive milestone of 2 million rides sometime on November 28th.
