The point of all this poolside fun in Wynyard was to raise HOPE!!!
Dionne Warner shares her story with the great people of the town.
Graham and Dionne Warner are placed front and centre (well, kind of - on the far left of the front row which is technically almost centre) in the group photo of the first-ever Swim For Life fundraiser, which was organized by two wonderful young ladies in Wynyard, SK. The event was prompted by the death of one of these women's aunts from cancer. The hope is to keep raising money so a cure is found - so no other family has to endure what this family and many other families encounter when cancer strikes.
