It was another glorious day in paradise at Summit Lake for the fun walk/run/bike/paddle fundraiser put on by Three Islands Resort.

Walk, run, bike, or paddle for fun and funds

The Three Island 10k Walk and Run for Fun reached a new record this year.

The Three Island 10k Walk and Run for Fun reached a new record this year. There were 139 people registered as the crowd set out on foot and bike, and organizer Irene Poznikoff was hoping this year the event would raise more than the $3,000 last year. This year, the money will be donated directly to the Arrow Lakes Hospital and will go toward providing wifi to help hospital staff.

The fun run is a popular annual event, with each participant walking away not only with a feeling they took part in something that will benefit the community, but also with a gift. Not only is the event popular with those who walk, run or bike, each year Irene Poznikoff is given donations from businesses throughout the Slocan and Arrow Lake regions as well as from the Okanagan.

Once again, the skies were clear and weather promising to be hot for this year’s group. Water stations were ready to hand folks bottles to rehydrate them on their way around the lake. Poznikoff said she had a few kayakers this year, and hopes there will be more paddlers taking a turn around the lake for the sake of our local hospital.
