Adults will get a chance to be a kid again today while bringing joy to children and young adults battling life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

Local White Spot outlets are participating in the seventh annual Pirate Pak Day, with $2 from the sale of each Pirate Park being donated to the Zajac Ranch for Children, a camp for children and young adults battling life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

Over the past six years, more than $200,000 has been raised for Zajac Ranch, where participating children go horseback riding, kayaking, play water sports and enjoy arts and crafts.

“Our long-standing partnership with White Spot provides a direct benefit to kids in need,” said Mel Zajac, founder of the ranch. “It’s so rewarding to see their faces light up when they try new camp activities, which are specially tailored to kids with special needs.”

Said White Spot president Warren Erhart: “It’s the perfect way for the young-at-heart to feel like a kid again, while supporting an amazing cause. We’re honoured to continue our work with Zajac Ranch.”
