All of our Climbers, volunteers, sponsors and suppliers deserve a huge THANK YOU for making the BC Lung Association’s 5th Annual Climb The Wall event a success.
All of the special people involved in Climb The Wall helped make this year’s event a record breaker! It was the biggest Climb ever:
- about 373 participants climbed the 739 stairs!- 48 firefighters set off in a blaze of glory!
Once again, a big THANK YOU to all climbers, volunteers and sponsors!
A personal note from Barb:
Thanks to everyone that supported and/or donated to this great event and cause!
Our Team from YVR did really well! My supervisor Chris placed 30th, I came away with the Fastest Female Firefighter trophy and Ryan finished 4th – only 40 seconds from taking first!!
I am looking forward to next years event already….

April 1992 – February 2006
Sadly, my old dog, Zoo passed on to greener pastures yesterday. I came home from work this morning to the news, and I just can’t get used to the idea that he’s no longer here and I won’t be able to wrap my arms around his thick, wooly neck anymore. Hurts.
Zoo went to live with Smoke’s parents about 5 years ago where he took on the job of looking after them, their puppy Julie, and their 4 acre orchard. (Thanks Ma & Pa Smoke for taking such great care of my friend!)
Zoo, (and Julie) was a well-traveled dog, as Mom would say, there probably wasn’t any dog out there that has pee’d on all four corners of North America. He’s been to and seen places on this continent that I have never seen, and will count myself lucky if I get the opportunity!
Ma & Pa Smoke had to take Zoo to the veterinarian for a final visit because his back legs and back were giving him intense pain, and now he can finally rest, pain-free and guarding greener pastures with Johnny’s old dog, Jackson who left us in April 2000…..
Here are some more recent pics of Zoo:

What a good lookin’ boy!! I’ll miss you !!!!
