MORE than 150 people put on their joggers to run along Bellerive and Howrah Beaches on a sunny morning in mid-March as part of the annual Clarence Lions Run the Beaches event.
Participants ran or walked either the five kilometre event or the two kilometre events.
Alongside the fun run/walk, there were a small group of stands at a community expo promoting different aspects of children’s health Lions projects.
This included the attendance of the Lauderdale Fire Brigade.
Lions Club members were excited to have the event go ahead after such a challenging year in 2020.
About $4000 was raised which will be donated to the Australian Lions Children’s Childhood Research Foundation.
The foundation uses the funds to increase survival rates of childhood cancer by supporting cancer research efforts in Australia and around the world.
Hazell Bros and Hutchinson Builders sponsored the event.
Clarence Lions, which is planning to host the event again next year, is actively involved in the community, fundraising to support Lions’ projects that assist those in need in the local community and across the world.
