Skips Run a great success

Money raised by the Lion's charity run will be use for Food Bank, Christmas Hampers and a high school bursary.

Seventy-two people participated in Skip’s Run on the River this year, raising money for the Ashcroft & District Lions Club..

Some of the money raised will go to the Food Bank, Christmas Hampers and a $500 bursary for an ASS student in the trades.

We are pleased with the results. Even though the numbers were about the same as last year, the run was more exciting, thanks to Vicky Trill’s ideas and help. We are hoping to have more participants next year and Vicky’s contacts with various run clubs should help do that. The Lions Club thanks all of the people who ran, walked or rolled. You all made the day a success.
