Eight Parksville and Comox Valley retirees will tackle the 10 km Virtual Vancouver Sun Run this month to raise funds to put Kenyan students through high school, where tuition is not free.
The fundraiser will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 10 at the Parksville Bottle Depot.
Here are some of the most prominent and impactful stories we reported on in 2021 (in no particular order).
Team spots are now all filled, but sponsorships and donations are still welcome, according to a media release from the resort.
The money raised will go towards restoration of the historic building, which served as a popular vacation destination starting in 1938, according to Shirley Culpin, the society’s media relations person.
“We’re very excited to join this virtual fundraiser and help raise funds for one of our club projects — the kids of Camp Shawnigan,” said Steve Beaman, Qualicum Bay Lions Club president.
