Lions Walk-a-thon $4,000 for Maternity & Pediatric Care

Lions Walkathon 2015 (36)Invermere, BC…  For the second year in a row the Lions Clubs of Windermere District, Fairmont, Wasa Lake and Golden (Zone E10) held a walk-a-thon to support the work of East Kootenay Foundation for Health.

The four clubs walked in their respective communities and then met for a goodwill lunch hosted by the Windermere club.

Lions’ members collected pledges resulting in $4,000 being dedicated to support equipment for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital’s maternity and pediatric unit.

Lions Walkathon 2015 (34)Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world.  The 1.35 million members – who perform community service in 209 countries and geographic areas – are different in many ways, but share a core belief:  community is what we make it.
