the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
A letter from the owner of this trailer
Christmas and Happy New year to you and your family and the band.
I have the utmost respect for you and what you have achieved in the music
industry, but also your personal achievements.
the mural on the trailer, I have done it as a friend/fan/and supporter of
April Wine. This project is a "thank you" for your hard work
and to show the fans that there are many of us that are very proud of
what the band has done. We need to be more supportive of our own
Canadian talent and give them much deserved recognition.
Regarding Diabetes, as I shared with you, my brother had to deal
with it since he was a teenager. I have seen the ugly side and the
struggle. After a kidney and pancreas transplant he was able to gain 8
more years of life. A year ago July I lost my brother and a best friend.
I was able to make difference in his life. Beautiful words sung in a song
by Randy Travis, "its not what you take with you, but it what you
leave behind." ...we have an opportunity to just that. These two
trailers are being used for different shows and many people see them.
Itís like planting a seed. I know when you do good, good things will
I have been working hard and I have been rewarded, I now own one of the
leading touring trucking companies in Canada but most of all, I have few
but amazing friends....Thank you for your contribution and Brian's input
and Don from Starlite Graphics to make this project happen...This project
is from my heart to you, and all the band members and to the fans... that
you are the best. Thank You for allowing me to be part of
Yours truly Boris Kuruc

Hi. Great to hear from you Myles. You seem to know how to brighten my
This season has been super busy for us and the trucks are all over the
map. Last week I was doing a show in Goderich Ontario and to get there you have to
go through many little towns. Pulling a April Wine trailer was neat, so
many people waving and giving their thumbs up, it does put a smile on
your face. I am waiting for an OK for a big show in Saskatoon next month, both of the
trailers would be going.
I hope all is well with you and the family......you are an inspiration
living proof that dreams do come true.
Cheers and all the best. Talk soon. Got to get out there and work, its a
