Joe Urie wants this to be a December to remember. The 49-year-old marathon runner, tour guide and father of three is encouraging his fellow Jasperites to get out and get active. The December Project encourages participants to perform some sort of activity, every day, for the entire month of December. It doesn’t have to be a marathon, or an epic ice climb. It just has to be a challenge to you. See the Facebook page for details. Besides the physical commitment, Urie is also asking participants to pledge a financial one. Putting $10 on the line will give people more of an incentive to follow through, he hopes. Money raised will go towards a local initiative to bring a Syrian refugee family to Jasper and to the Jasper Community Caring Fund. Pledges can be made at the Other Paw Bakery, the Bear's Paw Bakery, Lole Jasper and the SnowDome Coffeehouse.
