Shamrock Shuffle Fun Run -LAKE CHELAN LIONS CLUB –Fighting diabetes…one step at a time!

CHELAN, WA February 13, 2018:

The Lake Chelan Lions Club is sponsoring a Shamrock Shuffle Fun Run on Saturday, March 17th.

The effort came about from the Lions dedication to helping in the fight against diabetes. Partnering this event on our valley’s favorite parade, the Wayne Kelly Memorial Top Dog Parade, the day will be 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 especially designed to help them enjoy life and manage their diabetes. If you know of 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.
