The Withers family is continuing its support of a foundation that was created to honour the memory of Renata Elizabeth Withers, who died in 2005 after struggling with an eating disorder. 

A recently presented cheque for $50,000 represents a renewed three-year commitment to the foundation that was founded in 2006.

The contribution is in memory of Renata, whose passing in 2005 was the catalyst for her father, Vince Withers and his family, to do something to support others in the province who are dealing with this deadly mental illness.
