Every year we are excited to be on hand for the YMCA Strong Kids Run! This year it was held in Brandon on Sunday, May 27. Thank you to the YMCA for inviting us to participate in yet another safe and successful event!
Saturday, May 26 was a beautiful day for a 50 or 25 K run starting at the historic East Gate entrance to Riding Mountain National Park. BRSARA volunteers were ready to help at several First Aid Stations along the course trail. We would like to thank the organizers for inviting us to provide First Aid response at this exciting event! Information on this event and future adventure races can be found at: Race RMNP.
Did you know that BRSARA is available for K-9 Presentations? In this group photo, you can see Kime lapping up the spotlight with a group of Girl Guide Trex. Presentations include information on dog tracking, article searches, finding lost persons, obedience, obstacles, and time well spent getting to know Kime in person.
If you are interested in booking Kime for a presentation, contact us!
March 3, 2018 proved to be a mild-weather winter survival scenario, and the BRSARA team made the most out this skills-building event.
In the photograph above, Peter and Neil are instructing the group on different types of shelters that can be built using items from their 24-hour pack and natural resources in the area. Coverage of this training event was also captured by Brandon Sun reporter, Michael Lee.
