Oak Bay Firefighters have been holding the “Merrython” with the assistance of Recreation Oak Bay fore over 15yrs. We chose to support CFAX Santa’s Anonymous and over the years we have raised over $30,000 for this local charity. Unfortunately in 2011 with the transition into the Oak Bay Firefighters Charitable Foundation we were unable to maintain a focus with the Merrython and the event was taken over by the Rotary Club of Oak Bay. We assisted with the course marshaling in 2011 and 2012 and had SPARKY lead the kid’s run, however we no longer are directly involved in the Merrython. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those community members that supported us through the many years of this wonderful event.
