Community

You make healthy choices for your family, but it can be a challenge in today’s fast-paced world. We promote and pursue collaborative partnerships by initiating, sponsoring or promoting local heathy activities. We also work closely with our local healthcare facilities to help bring the best possible healthcare to our residents.

Shamrock Shuffle

The Lake Chelan Lions Club sponsored the 1st Annual Shamrock Shuffle Fun Run on Saturday, March 17, 2018. The effort came about from the Lions’ dedication to helping fight diabetes. Partnering with this event on our Valley’s favorite parade, the Wayne Kelly Memorial Top Dog Parade, the day serves as a great reminder of what small communities can do for the people who live here.  All are encouraged to participate by registering to walk or run. Bring your family, your friends and even your dog (on a leash of course), and let’s send some of our local students to camps in Washington State designed to help them enjoy life and manage their diabetes.  If you know a student who would benefit from a camp like this, please contact the club for more information.

Lake Chelan Lions Club is proud to partner with our sponsor, Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation.  Through a cash donation, LCHWF is making this event possible.  Together, we hope to encourage our valley to keep active, and put their health first through education and awareness.

Lions club international is the world’s largest service club organization with 1.36 million members in more than 46,000 clubs in 210 countries and geographic areas. In addition to its efforts toward conquering sight and hearing needs, as well as diabetes, the organization has made a strong commitment to community service and helping youth throughout the world.  For information, contact email lakechelanlions@gmail.com.  To find out what’s new, please “Like us” on Facebook/Lake Chelan Lions.

Lake Chelan Rotary Vineyard Runs

Why not spend Saturday May 19, 2018 participating in one of the Lake Chelan Rotary four vineyard runs?  Each run takes you through the vineyards where you can enjoy beautiful views of mountains, Lake Chelan, and grape vines at Tsillan Cellars winery and neighboring Tunnel Hill winery. Profits from this fundraiser go toward scholarships for Lake Chelan Valley students and other philanthropic endeavors that Lake Chelan Rotary is involved with.

Our Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation is a sponsor of the 2.5K Fun Run that welcomes family/friend groups, and the short legs (kids and dogs). This is a great opportunity for elementary student running clubs and relaxed jogging/walking participants.

The 10K Vineyard Challenge is as the name implies – a challenge!  The course takes advantage of vineyard gravel roads and trails. It is not yet fully designed but as soon as it is, the website will be updated. The 5K Vineyard Challenge is half the challenge but equally beautiful. It has a total elevation gain of 800 feet. Bring the dog, you can both stretch your legs

There will also be a Silent Auction, hot dogs on the grill with all the trimmings and face painting for the children and light of heart. All of these will be available by donation. We can even arrange for you to tour the winery if you would like.
