109 people showed up to walk

Three Island Resort 10K fund raiser a fun trek around lake

There were 109 walkers and runners taking part in the 16th annual Three Islands Resort 10K Walk and Run for Fun this year.

There were 109 walkers and runners taking part in the 16th annual Three Islands Resort 10K Walk and Run for Fun fund raiser for the Arrow Lakes Hospital Foundation last Sunday, July 8, which was one more participant than last year. The funds raised, though, were significantly more, with $3,000 being raised for the local hospital.

Folks taking part walked, ran, and rode the 10-kilometre path up at Summit Lake, including Three Island Resort owner and event organizer Irene Poznikoff’s 7-year-old granddaughter Brooklyn. Brooklyn and her friend Sarah completed the ten kilometre route on their bikes.

Poznikoff was grateful that the trails had been cleaned up before the run, which made it easier to set up tables with water every three kilometres for walkers, bikers and runners.

The owner-organizer started collecting prizes and donations in May from near and far. Shops in South Slocan, New Denver, Salmo, and even Idaho donated to the event.

“It’s so much easier now that people know me,” said Poznikoff, who was pleased by the great turn out again this year, even though the walk was advertised in only one local paper.

Each of the participants took home a prize in addition to helping out a great cause – our local hospital.
