Brockville – On Friday morning, the “Chair of Hope” was presented to the city of Brockville in Downtown Brockville by the Women’s Memorial on Blockhouse Island.
Dawn Telgen created the “Chair of Hope” fundraising project, an Adirondack chair that is filled with the names of local people who have had Cancer touch their life.
Dawn is participating this year in The Epic Walk for Cancer which is being held in Ottawa on Septemeber 16th. It was a way for her to give back for all the support she would recieve.
She says the chair helps to immortalize the courageous battle that some are fighting, some have fought and won and sadly, fought and lost to cancer.
The materials donated by Darren Davies, with the craftsmanship of Stephen and Daryl Kennedy and generous support from All About Numbers made the project idea a reality.
