ALS cycle of hope

ALS Cycle of Hope Riders

There’s been lots of media attention lately for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge which is really cool, In fact I did that challenge myself (John – editor) We want to make sure though that a hardworking group of volunteers and cyclists from the ALS Cycle of Hope are also given accolades for their efforts to raise awareness, support and research dollars for ALS. These folks did far more than just dump ice water on their heads. The following post is an excerpt from the ALS Cycle for Hope post event wrap-up for 2014.  Accent Inns has been thrilled to support these awesome volunteers!   Each year, for the past three years, the Cycle of Hope Society proudly offers a variety of exciting fundraising events and fun community/family cycling events in Kelowna and Victoria.  (more…)

Alex Fraser, son of Julia Fraser, wins silver at the BC summer Games

This July Alex Fraser, son of the famous Julia Fraser (Regional Sales Manager for Accent Inns Kelowna and Kamloops) won a silver medal at the BC Summer Games in Langley. Alex played for the Thompson-Okanagan Team which finished 1st in their pool which earned them a semi-final game against Vancouver Island. In the semi-final game, they defeated Vancouver Island 8-7 (tough for Accent Inn Victoria staff routing for the Vancouver Island team). “It was a thrilling game and it was probably the best the Thompson-Okanagan Team has ever played”, said Julia Fraser, Regional Sales Manager and proud Mom. In the Championship Final for the Gold, they lost a heartbreaker to Fraser River/Delta 6-3 (a tough loss for our Accent Inn Vancouver Airport staff)

“Iron Man” Alex Fraser played all 5 games, pitched and played first base.
