Why Participate in Race for Kids™ in Williams Lake?
Over the years, we have worked hard to get to know the young people in our community. We know what makes them tick, what interests them and what issues they are facing. With that in mind, we then attempt to offer the right programming to meet their needs. We know we can’t do it alone and we rely heavily on community support to help continue our work. That’s where you come in!
By participating in this year’s Race for Kids™, you will be an important part of helping our Club move forward. Funds raised will go directly back into the Williams Lake community so that we can continue offering the types of programs our young people need the most.
