Lyndon Lions ‘stride’ to help others manage diabetes

LYNDON, Kan. – The Lyndon Lions Club will host a Strides Community Walk Event, Oct. 1, 2022, at Lyndon Jones Park, Lyndon, Kan. The local Lions are inviting community residents of all ages to participate in this event, which will benefit Camp Discovery Youth Diabetes Summer Camp.  Registration for the event is $5 per person. All participants will receive a “participation bag”.

The Strides Walk starts at 8 a.m. that Saturday, with participant on-site registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. for those not pre-registered. The registration station will be set up at the Lyndon Lions Shelter House in Jones Park by the baseball diamonds.

“Gather your family, friends, and neighbors to register and join the Lyndon Lions Club for this exciting event,” said club president Ferne Evans. “Strides is an enjoyable way for the community to get together to promote healthy exercise in the fight against diabetes.”

During the Strides event, participants can visit stations along the way to participate in activities and learn more about the prevention and management of diabetes. Lions and Leos around the world organize Strides community events to heighten awareness about diabetes and to emphasize the importance of healthy exercise to prevent and manage this disease.
