This year, Around The Lake is proud to announce its partnership with the Chilliwack School District’s We Schools program. The We Schools program empowers youth to engage in a variety of service-learning projects to positively impact their local and global communities.
The specific event we are supporting is called We Scare Hunger. We Scare Hunger is a canned food drive, and we are asking participants and volunteers to bring one item or more of non-perishable food on race day. A group of grade 5/6 students from Strathcona Elementary will happily collect your donated items before the race starts and for a brief time after the race starts, and provide any additional information about the We Schools program offered by Free The Children.
Students across the city are engaging in a variety of different types of food drives with all donated non-perishable food going directly to the Chilliwack Salvation Army at the end of October.
Thank you in advance for your support.
