The Little Valley Lions Club’s annual 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at 10 a.m. at the Little Valley American Legion on Route 353.
Registration will be at 9 a.m. at the parking lot by the Legion. The donation fee for the event is $20 per participant and under 17 is $15. Snacks, beverage and shirts will be provided. Category winners will receive gift certificates.
The fundraiser will benefit local sight needs and Canines for the Handicapped. Proceeds also go to the Vision Beyond Sight Foundation. This foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides volunteer and financial support to the Ira Ross Eye Institute in Buffalo. A Lions Diagnostic Center is there also.
Funds go to buy the best of equipment to promote eye health and also helps patients. No dollars go to doctors’ salaries. Many people from this area go to Ross Eye for eye needs. The Eye Center is unique in that it focuses on treatment, research and education.
Donation checks can be made out to Little Valley Lion’s Club and sent to Lions Club Treasurer Anita Campbell at 12299 W. Main St., Randolph, NY 14772. For information, call (716) 945-2563.
The club is always grateful to all sponsors, donors and participants. The event is a lot of fun and you can enjoy the lovely fall colors as you job along the 5K route.
