12th annual Strides Kelowna event on Saturday

The Kelowna Gospel Mission (KGM) 12th annual Strides Kelowna walk and run event is Saturday.

With the goal of raising $70,000 to support people experiencing homelessness in the Okanagan Valley, the 2K walk, 5K walk or run, and 10K run will be held at the Laurel Packinghouse from 2 to 5 pm on March 4.

Over $46,000 has been raised so far.

“The overflow of thanks goes to the support from local entrepreneurs for our raffle draw, Strides participants and our sponsors,” says Carmen Rempel, the executive director of KGM.

There will be complimentary chili from the newly branded KGM Community Eats food truck at the end of the walk and run.

This year, KGM teamed up with local businesses including Smith Creek Cycle, Black Phoenix Tea Room, Sovereign Cycle, JK Schmidt Jewellers and Train Station Pub for the raffle and balloon pop.

Registered attendees will also receive a long-sleeve Strides Kelowna running shirt.

KRM and Gorman Bros Lumber are the presenting sponsors of Strides Kelowna.
