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 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.
