Friends of the Lake 5K Walk/Family Walk to be April 19

Feb 28, 2014

The Friends of the Lake will sponsor a 5K Run/Family Walk at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 19, at the Nanci Weldon Gym located on North Lakeshore Drive, Lake Junaluska.

The Friends of the Lake 5K Run/Family Walk is a charitable event to support the recreation opportunities of Lake Junaluska. The annual cost of maintaining the grounds and recreation facilities at Lake Junaluska is over $250,000, and 100 percent of the proceeds for this event will go towards the maintenance and improvement of the recreation areas.

This year’s 5K Run/Family Walk is part of a new initiative to raise money to support the recreational opportunities at Lake Junaluska called Friends of the Lake. Participants of this year’s 5K Walk/Run will also become members of the Friends of the Lake program.
