Event supports local KidSport

The chance to give kids a sporting chance laces up at Lakers Clubhouse today.

The inaugural Mind, Body & Sole KidSport five kilometre Fun Run and Walk hits the track at 10 a.m. (starting at Lakers Clubhouse on Cummins Road by the Vernon Soccer Center).

Everyone is encouraged to come out to get fit, have fun and support kids in sport. All the money goes to KidSport in Vernon so all kids can play.

You don’t need to be a runner to do this fun run/walk, says organizer Brent Helland, who owns Mind, Body & Sole Running. It is a family event, so bring the kids and they can ride their bikes while you walk or run the five kilometre route.

Registration is $15 a person or $40 per family and there will be lots of draw prizes.
