Annual walk raises funds for education

Proceeds from Women For Women walk on Sept. 8 will support single moms heading back to school

On Saturday, Sept. 8, join Campbell River business leaders and community members at the ninth annual Women For Women (W4W) Trail Mix Challenge and help single mothers pursue their educational dreams.

Event proceeds support single mothers enrolling or continuing their education at North Island College’s Campbell River campus. Since its conception in 2004, event organizer and founder Shelagh Germyn has raised $20,000 in bursaries.

Race participants can choose from the five- or 10 km trail, as well as a short fun run.

It all happens at the Carihi field, starting at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 12 p.m. Registration is $35 and will open at 8 a.m.  Contact Germyn at 250-923-1788 or find them on Facebook at Women For Women 5k/10k Trail Mix Challenge and “Kids Run.”
