The Lions Journey for Sight is a snowmobile ride that left Flin Flon last Wednesday finishing in Brandon Saturday. It is held to raise money for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. Committee Chair Brad Henderson says they were able to ride at least half the way but they ran out of snow at Grandview and then were able to ride a little bit from Onanole to Erickson but the rest of the time they had to trailer which was a little disappointing but over all it was a great time had by all.
Henderson says 18 snowmobiles from across the province wrapped up the ride in Brandon on Saturday. He says so far just over 31 thousand dollars has been turned in with money still coming in from pledges made to the riders and from their snowmobile draw. When all the money came in last year the Journey had raised close to 73 thousand dollars for the Eye Bank.
