Predator Ridge run helps Habitat

The eighth annual Fun Run at Predator Ridge was another success.

The event raised $1,000 for the Vernon chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

“The family-oriented fun run attracted nearly 100 entrants, resulting in a welcome boost to the group’s fundraising activities for the month,” said Terry Clements, with Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat is currently constructing a triplex on East Hill.

“With drywallers presently mudding and sanding the interior walls, it won’t be long before the three young families already selected to enjoy affordable payments on their own homes can move to their new surroundings,” said Clements.

This spring, the provincial government provided $150,000 for the project, which has also been included in the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project for 2017.
