Back Country Medics join in IOGA Spring Roundup

Back Country Medics joined with the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association Clearwater Chapter April 9 at the Orofino City Park to celebrate and help raise funds to benefit area communities during the annual IOGA Spring Roundup.

Each year, the Clearwater Chapter hosts the roundup activities as a fundraiser for ICARE (Cancer Awareness and Recovery Effort) and to provide scholarships for local students.

One of the popular raffles at the event was for three people to take a helicopter flight in the Hillcrest Aircraft Bell Long Ranger with pilot and company owner Gale Wilson. Brenda Drobish was the winner and she gave her three children Nathan, Nick and Mattie the opportunity to see the Clearwater Valley in a way they won't soon forget.

Back Country Medics dropped ping pong balls for the youngsters at the event. Those balls were turned in for prizes.

Back Country Medics participate in a variety of community events around the region each year to teach about helicopter safety, to support other community organizations and to let people know they are there to help when a serious accident or illness make expedited transport because as their motto says, "We Care About People."
