Ice is nice

Stacey Price helps her son Kanen, 3, learn to skate during the first Children’s Wish Foundation Ice Carnival at Pitt Meadows Arena Complex on Saturday, while volunteer Kelsey Acaster helps Kirill Kudelya, 3, and his mother, Maryna, paint the ice. More than 250 people turned up for the event, which raised $3,700.  “Of course, it would have been wonderful to have more people, but as a first annual and just sort of getting into the community, I think it went quite well,” said Alexandra Eady, the B.C. and Yukon chapter event coordinator. March 2012 was the first Children’s Wish Month, dedicated to building awareness and having different fundraisers for the foundation. Eady hopes to build on the Ice Carnival fundraiser in the community next year. - Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS
