Five teams are participating in Saturday’s Annual Race for Kids to have fun while raising funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Williams Lake and District.
Things kicked off at Herb Gardner Park at 10 a.m. with all teams racing up the hill to the City Hall parking lot where they took a stab at the dunk tank, sinking either Mayor Walt Cobb or Williams Lake RCMP Officer in Charge Insp. Jeff Pelley.
“We’ve got the teams going to 10 different stations after this,” said Chastity-blu Wright, administrative assistant at the Boys and Girls Club once the mayor and inspector had been successfully dunked. “We hope to have it all wrapped up by noon with our Rotary barbecue.”
From the dunk tank, teams were given the instructions and list of locations where their challenges were stationed.
They included The Pink Room, Western Financial, The Realm of Toys, Marie Sharpe, Hub Barton Insurance, Lake Town Furnishings, Rona, Cariboo Growers, Crosina Realty and the Library.
The event is the main fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club, who run after school programs for youth in the community.
