The four Elk Valley Lions Clubs (Elkford, Sparwood, Fernie and Sand Creek) fed more than 200 hungry athletes at the annual Kikomun Run on May 8. The clubs donated their time, and along with Overwaitea, all the food. They dished up hot dogs, watermelon and cold drinks to the students from Frank J Mitchell Elementary School, Isabella Dicken Elementary School, Rocky Mountain Elementary School and Jaffray Elementary School who participated in the event.
