Lily walks for charity — big success

Over $2,000 raised for Sooke's new women's cancer support program

Over 100 Sooke area residents and visitors from Victoria enjoyed the Kludahk Trail guided walks last week to raise start-up funds for Sooke’s new women’s cancer support program.

The avalanche lilies up on the San Juan Ridge were both fabulous and profuse. Millions of them! Most of the hikers enjoyed a three-km hike, some of it in snow,  to the Kludahk Interpretative tea hut that overlooks the San Juan Valley.  Over $2,000 was raised for this most worthy cause.  The next support group meeting for women, who have been impacted by breast or ovarian cancer, is next Tuesday, July 10, 7 p.m. at Sooke Harbour House. Newcomers are welcome.  For more information please call Mary Dunn, evenings at  250 646 2554
