Lyndon Lions to stride for diabetes awareness

LYNDON, Kan. – Members of the Lyndon Lions Club, along with their friends and families, will walk in the 5k Strides: Lions for Diabetes Awareness event, scheduled during Lyndon’s annual fall festival, Oct. 7, 2023.

The walk will begin at 10 a.m. on the Osage County Courthouse lawn and travel to the finish line at the same place the walk started. Total distance covered will be three miles. Health screenings and information from local companies will be available to the public free of charge along the walk.

“There’s still time to gather your family, friends and neighbors to walk in the Strides event,” said Lyndon Lions Club President Barb Schattak. “This is an enjoyable way for the community to join together in the fight against diabetes.”

Lyndon Mayor Steve Morrison recently proclaimed the day of the walk as Lyndon Lions Club Community Event Day for Diabetes. See proclamation here.

Registration will be at the Lions booth on the courthouse lawn starting at 9:30 a.m.: entry is $5, payable on the day of the event.

Lions all over the world organize Strides events in their communities to heighten awareness of diabetes and its complications and to provide information on preventing and managing the disease. These events promote regular, healthy exercise and include participants of all ages.
