On April 19th, the second annual “Give the Gift of Life Fun Run & Walk” will take place at the downtown YMCA. Participants are encouraged to raise funds for patients waiting for organ transplants for The Kidney Foundation of Canada Southern Alberta Branch. Last year, the first time that the event took place, they had 60 participants and raised $15,000 stated Jodi Currie, manage of communications for the foundation. This year the organization hopes to raise $20,000 and bring at least 100 participants out. The event includes a light breakfast as well as entertainment from the local band, Mahoney. The event will be a 5 km fun run, or a 2 km walk for those who attend.
