The Lions Journey for Sight is a snowmobile ride that left Flin Flon last Wednesday finishing in Brandon Saturday. It’s held to raise money for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. Committee Chair Brad Henderson says the Journey went well. He says they had left Flin Flon with 15 sleds and they got into Brandon with a few more than that as some people around Brandon joined up so he thinks they had somewhere around 37 sleds when they finished.
Henderson says so far around 34,500 dollars has been turned in with money still to come from pledges made to the riders and from their snowmobile draw. When all the money came in last year the Journey had raised 82 thousand dollars for the Eye Bank.
