Horsefly walking club supports ALS fundraiser

Horsefly Ladies Walking Club distinguished themselves by being the largest group to participate in the second annual ALS walk.

The Horsefly Ladies Walking Club, along with Esther’s Oschwald’s husband, Beat, distinguished themselves once again by being the largest group to participate in the second annual ALS, B.C. walk in Williams Lake June 22.

Together, they raised more than $1,300 towards this most worthy project.

Esther says it was a very nice event, starting with the national anthem followed by a moment to reflect upon your loved ones lost to this terrible disease, and then off they all went heralded by two Scottish pipers for part of the way.

Other than being sidelined by a vicious thunder and hail storm,their walk was uneventful.

Way to go ladies, and Beat, you make us proud to be Horseflinians.
