Harrison golf tournament boosts Children’s Hospital

Mayor and council hit the greens for a good cause

Megan McNeil was only 20 years old when she died of cancer, but in her short life she inspired many through the media. She also wrote the song The Will to Survive as a tribute to all other children fighting cancer.

She connected with people all over North America, including Harrison Hot Springs where her grandparents live.

It’s for those reasons that the Harrison Mayor and Council Golf Tournament was donated in her name to the Children’s Oncology Department at BC Children’s Hospital.

In total, the tournament raised $1,583, said Mayor Leo Facio.

It was held at the Harrison Resort Golf Course on June 24.
