The Baynes Sound Lions will roll a wheelbarrow from Fanny Bay to the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay Sunday, collecting funds for the Telethon along the way.

Lions ready to wheel to Telethon

Baynes Sound Lions set for their annual trek from Fanny Bay to the Sid Williams Theatre

On Sunday, Nov. 5, these wonderful, dedicated volunteers from the Baynes Sound Lions are once again ready to start their annual walk for the kids. Starting from Fanny Bay, the Lions will wheel their now famous wheelbarrow all the way to the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay, all to raise funds for the 42nd Annual Child Development Association Telethon. The Telethon will air live on Shaw TV Channel 4 from noon to 8 p.m. All money raised stays right here in the Comox Valley and supports children with special needs and their families. The Child Development Association is located at the corner of Third Street and Cliffe Avenue in Courtenay and last year served 850 children with special needs. Call 250-334-9200 on Sunday to donate and visit our website at www.cvcda.ca to learn about our services.
