The second annual Walk/Run for Heritage drew a crowd of eager runners on Saturday.

Second annual run raises funds for Agassiz heritage

Mayor joins in Walk/Run for Heritage on sunny March morning

The skies were blue and clear for the second annual Walk/Run for Heritage on Saturday, Mar. 23  in Agassiz.

Mayor John Van Laerhoven of the District of Kent welcomed participants, and Wilma Struys got the runners’ blood pumping with a fun, aerobics-style warm up before they all headed off for their three, five or 10 km runs.

Fun times were had by all, said Agassiz Harrison Museum staff, with many of the participants walking away with prizes from one or more of the many local businesses who generously donated them.

The event was hosted by Agassiz Harrison Museum and Kilby Historic Site. The proceeds will go toward preserving the local heritages of Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs and Harrison Mills.

The hosts of the Walk/Run for Heritage are grateful to all the sponsors, volunteers, and local businesses that helped to make this event possible. The event grew from last year’s, with the addition of a 10 km run.
