605 Cheers and $60,000 for Lewisporte’s new oval running track in support of healthy active livingShare Tweet
The Kinsmen Club of Notre Dame and the Lewisporte Lions Club in collaboration with the 2012 Come Home Year Committee were among one of the 21 recipients who shared in the $1-million community grant through the Molson Coors Community Cheer program this year.
The Lewisporte community helped gather 605 cheers in support of a project that sought funding to develop a walking and running track around an existing soccer pitch to commemorative the town’s Come Home Year. The track will also serve as a venue for a host of active living activities such as Special Olympics training, school track events, Relay for Life and other non-profit walk fundraisers.
With the $60,000 donation from Community Cheer, the committee is aiming to complete the new track by August – just in time for the start of Lewisporte’s Come Home Year celebrations!
