Arborg Christian Fellowship successfully hosted a fundraiser to finance Linda Gerritsen’s much needed medical equipment on Sept. 1.

The fundraiser provided coffee and dessert at no cost for guests and featured a silent auction and door prizes. The fundraiser was able to raise $1,300.

An anonymous foundation stepped in to top-up the remaining $1,200 to meet the $10,000 mark so that the church can purchase the potentially live sustaining equipment for Linda, a seated recumbent cross trainer called a Nu Step, which will help the plane crash survivor who lost her legs exercise regularly.
