Pipestone Flyer

The Wetaskiwin Community Transportation Society held its 1st Annual Walker-thon earlier today (Friday, September 26, 2014) at the Wetaskiwin Mall.

Led by Mayor Bill Elliot and W1440 Morning Man Billy Williams, 14 participants combined to raise $3,014.55 by walking 2 km inside the Wetaskiwin Mall. A strong, spirited contingent from the Legion Arms led the way as they alone raised over $2,000 themselves for the cause.

Congratulations to Shirley Bennefield and Geraldine Donnelly who were the top non-client pledge getters and to Lee Wilcox and Lucy Alderman who were the top client pledge getters.

Thank you to Smitty’s, Snap Fitness, Wetaskiwin Boston Pizza, Endurance Equities/Wetaskiwin Mall, and W1440 for their support of the event.
