Area resident Michell Gardner is the local co-ordinator for the 100 Mile House Kidney Walk, which will be held at Centennial Park on Sept. 27.

Registration for the event is at 9 a.m., and the 2.5-kilometre walk starts at 10.

Pledge forms are available at Safeway, Lakewood Inn Beer & Wine Store and the 108 Mile Esso.

While this is the first time she has organized the Kidney Walk, Gardner has experience running Terry Fox Runs on Gabriola Island.

Gardner says she is looking for volunteers for the day of the event.

“We need people to help set-up and take-down and help to pick stuff – water and food –

up on the day of the event.”

She is also looking a couple of people who would be interested in sitting on the kidney walk committee.

Gardner says the key now is to get more volunteers to do some work on Sept. 27. Positions, such as registration, route marshall and Ask Me volunteers, need to be filled, she adds.

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, e-mail Michell at 100milehousewalk@kidney.bc.ca, or call 778-485-1933 (not long distance).

In terms of entertainment, the Cariboo Idols be performing throughout day.
