KidSport charity run on tap

Second annual Kidsport 5-km Fun Run and Walk goes Sunday, May 27.

Race organizers are looking to set a personal best in fundraising for the second annual Kidsport 5-km Fun Run and Walk on Sunday, May 27.

The event, sponsored by Sutton Lakefront Realty and Sun FM, is hoping to raise $2,600 for Greater Vernon KidSport.

Starting at the old Lakers Clubhouse (7000 Cummins Road), the 5-km loop heads east along Okanagan Landing Road, onto Tronson Road and ending on Lakeshore Road.

The cost is $15 per runner or $40 for a family, with all proceeds going to Greater Vernon KidSport. Strollers are welcome, as are kids of all ages and people of every running ability.

To register, visit, or drop by the Vernon Recreation Centre or Sutton Lakefront Realty. If paying by cheque, please write it to the Regional District of the North Okanagan.

Race organizers Brent and Susie Helland, of Mind, Body & Sole Running and Fitness, are looking for race volunteers and draw prize donations.

For more information, call Greater Vernon Recreation (250) 545-6035, or contact the Hellands online at /contactus.
