A big thank you to everyone who participated in the 11th annual Longest Day Walk/Run event on Sunday.  And thanks also to those of you who couldn’t make it, but donated anyway!

A special thank you to Melodie from Saint James Music Academy for sharing your passion for your wonderful organization with us. And to Travel Concepts, ToursByLocals, Travel Concepts, and The Travel Group for supplying refreshments. Thanks to all of you, this event keeps getting better and better!

Our Friends In Travel (F.I.T.) organizers are committed to finding many more opportunities you and your colleagues in the travel industry to get together and have fun while helping our community.  As you know, many F.I.T. alumni flew up to Whitehorse & Dawson City in January this year to raise money for Yukon charities.  Look for something exciting later this summer.  And, I happen to know that a few lucky F.I.T. members will be participating in the first ever Ultra/Relay Race from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk next May.   Contact me for details if you’re interested. 

You can be sure that whatever we organize, it will always focus on supporting local causes.  The travel industry contributes so much towards making this world a better place; but we can’t forget about the needs in our own back yard!
