Fernie teenager wins a car with a Roll Up The Rim To Win Tim Hortons cup

Leah Teeple, 16, from Fernie, is celebrating after winning a car.

The Fernie Secondary School student picked up the winning cup at the Tim Hortons in Fernie.

Owner Kristine Hovind-Pelletier said she is happy someone from the community won the top prize.

"It's incredible that of all the cups distributed, Fernie got the winner!" she said.

"Someone won a boat after getting a coffee from us a few years ago, but he was from Calgary.

It's way more fun for us to see someone actually from Fernie win!"

Leah will be collecting a shiny new Toyota Rav 4, valued at around $32,000 next month.

Check back on Monday, and in next week's newspaper, for our interview with the winner!
