Don't stop voting!
While the Fort Frances High School Medical Responders have garnered more than 8,000 votes so far in the Tbaytel For Good Community Fund, the public is urged to keep voting today through Monday to help them secure one of two $5,000 prizes.
Residents can vote for the group by going online to www.tbaytelforgood.net/poll/5000-funding/
Individuals can vote as many times as they choose.
As of press time today, the FFHS Medical Responders were about 1,000 votes behind two other semi-finalists—the Matawa Learning Centre's Good Neighbour Program and the Black Sheep Mountain Bike Club's kids' mountain bike trail.
Both of these semi-finalists are from Thunder Bay.
The local group has to be one of the top two vote-getters to receive funding.
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m. (EST) on Monday (June 11).
Winners will be announced on June 14.
As previously reported, the FFHS Medical Responders were selected by a panel of judges as one of five semi-finalists in the running to win $5,000.
The funds are needed to update their equipment and add a defibrillator to allow the group to continue to volunteer to provide first aid coverage and injury prevention awareness for community events.
