Saturday, May 15, 2004, some fifty participants walked the walk of the third annual West
Island Meals on Wheels Walkathon, organized by the West Island Volunteer Bureau.
In total, about $29,000 was raised, including a number of corporate donations. Once again
Summerlea's Western Lachine group, one of twelve West Island MOW groups, led in
participation and donations, the eleven walkers (and supporters) raising some $1550 of the
The five (actually closer to six) km walk went from Beacon Hill down St. Charles, along the Lakeshore to Pointe-Claire Village, up through the Field of Honour tunnel and back to Beacon Hill. Not an insignificant stroll.
Congratulations and thanks to Lucy French and all the walkers for their on-going dedication to the Meals on Wheels programme that produces healthy lunch-time meals in the Summerlea kitchen for shut-ins in Western Lachine, every Tuesday and Thursday thoughout the year.
Below are a few photos of the event taken by the Western Lachine co-ordinator, Lucy French.
