Congratulations to all 29 walk/runners!  There were 14 runners, 8 walkers and 8 in strollers. The Biggest Adult team was the winner of the $100 prize.

A special mention goes out to our most senior walker, Gord Hallam, and to our youngest runner, Morgan Bolieau. Special thanks to the dedication of Bert Snow and Dana Drugan, who have come out to every Tuesday’s group walk/run training! Remember to put Sat. April 20 at 9am on your calendar for the 5 or 10km walk/run.
