The annual Lions Journey for Sight is a snowmobile ride from Flin Flon to Brandon with stops across the province to raise money for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. One of the organizers Dean Lounsbury from the Dauphin Lions Club says it turned out very well. He says the committee had a meeting about a week and a half ago and the number they have for this year is 75 thousand dollars which is more than last year so again a successful year with a limited number of riders but thanks to everybody in Flin Flon for all their support again.
The Journey for Sight headed south from Flin Flon on Wednesday, January 17th arriving in Brandon on the following Saturday with 18 snowmobiles from across the province. Funds raised come from pledges to the riders as well as from the annual snowmobile raffle.
