Red Nose rides again

Some good drivers are being sought to help people get home

Operation Red Nose is still looking for more volunteers for New Year’s Eve.

The campaign has been a success so far.

The first weekend of operation Operation Red Nose featured 15 teams and provided 57 rides, driving a total of 1,735 kilometres.

The second weekend, 20 teams provided 112 rides, for 3,117 km.

Last weekend, 21 teams provided 121 rides, for 3,261 km.

This will be the last weekend of service for Operation Red Nose, which will also be active on New Year’s Eve.

“We are always looking for more volunteers to try to get more rides out there so more money can be raised for amateur sport. But also more people can be driven home when they need to.

“Definitely on Dec. 31 we are going to need lots of volunteers,” said Alex Pollock, Operation Red Nose community liaison.

This is the 19th year of Operation Red Nose service in British Columbia, which serves 25 communities across British Columbia.

To volunteer, go to operationnezrouge.com or pacificsportfraservalley.com.

To book a ride, call 604-515-6673 in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows or 604-515-NOSE.

Operation Red Nose runs from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. Dec. 19, 20 and 31.
