Staff at Port Coquitlam’s Hyde Creek rec centre are organizing a family walk along the Traboulay PoCo Trail next weekend in memory of Charlene Reaveley, who was killed in a hit-and-run accident last month.

A Walk to Remember will be held Saturday, March 12 starting at the rec centre (1379 Laurier Ave.) to honour Reaveley, a mother of four young children who taught fitness classes at rec centres around the Tri-Cities, and raise money for her family.

The event will begin at 1 p.m. with opening words from Mayor Greg Moore, followed by a warm-up led by Hyde Creek’s fitness team. The walk will be followed with some yoga stretching and reflection at 2 p.m.

Those who participate in the walk are encouraged to make a donation to the Reaveley family.

Reaveley, a mother of four, and Lorraine Cruz were killed in a hit-and-run Feb. 19 on Lougheed Highway near Pitt River Road in Coquitlam. Reaveley had been assisting Cruz, who had been in a minor accident, when a vehicle struck both victims on the side of the road.




Donations to the Reaveley family can be made to Dan Reaveley in trust at any Royal Bank branch. Anyone wanting to contribute must give the branch number (04320) and the account number (5032180) when making their donation.
