Cornwall and area sports groups to raise money
The Guardian

CORNWALL - Cornwall and area sports groups are planning a major event for May 24th that could raise a good deal of money for school breakfast programs in the area and a local sports equipment fund.

The first annual Let's Give Back Campaign will incorporate a walk/run-a-thon, games, an inflatable play area, sports clinics, a barbecue, a yard sale and other attractions.

Slated for the Cornwall Turf Field this fun-filled day is jointly sponsored by the North River Minor Hockey Association, Cornwall & area Skating Club, Cornwall & Area Minor Ball Association, Eliot River Ramblers Soccer & Timberwolves Football.

These events, which will take place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. that day, are open to parents, players, area residents of all ages and anyone else interested in making the community an active, family-friendly place to live.

Pledge sheets will be distributed in area schools May 1.

They can also be picked up at the town hall.

Prizes will be awarded to the top pledge in each school, the top class in each school and the top four students overall.

There is also a prize for the top pledge who is not a student.

Door prizes will be drawn for throughout the day.

Fifty per cent of the proceeds will go to the Westwood, Eliot River and East Wiltshire School breakfast programs and the Bluefield Sports Equipment Fund.

Further information on the Let's Give Back Campaign is available by calling 628-6260.
