  Oak Ridges Lions Run for Childhood Cancer

 

Our team at Oak Ridges Lions Club is thrilled to share a virtual event that we hope you will support and participate in! We are raising money for Childhood Cancer (one of our 5 pillars) in partnership with Southlake Regional Health Cancer Centre and SickKids hospital.

 

What if we told you that for a $10.00 donation, not only could you help us raise money to fight childhood cancer, but you could win prizes, JUST for going walking, running or biking during the month of August!

 

Christine Weerdenberg, District A-16 Childhood Cancer Committee Chairperson knows first hand how donations to this cause make a difference.  She has a grandchild who has received treatment. "I've been doing this job for 4 years now, and I know that the support we offer the hospital, the parents, and the kids, who are going through treatments and tests, really appreciate everything we do."  Please see Christine share her thoughts: here!

 

The event: Oak Ridges Lions Club Run for Children's Cancer (you can walk, or bike as well)

 

When:  The whole month of August 2021

 

Where:  Your favourite place to get outside and be active
