DelVal Lions Club and P.A.W.Z. to Host Walk-A-Thon

Apr 24, 2008

The Delaware Valley College chapters of the Lions Club and P.A.W.Z. (Positive Awareness of Wildlife and Zoos) will host the 1st Lion Pawz Walk-A-Thon. The event will take place Sunday, May 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., beginning at Delaware Valley College's Student Center and running through a mapped route around campus.

Funds raised for the Lions Club will be donated to the Beacon Lodge Camp for the Blind, a camp located in Mount Union, PA, that has been giving blind individuals a safe and fun camping experience since 1948. The group intends to send one disabled child to the camp for the upcoming summer. P.A.W.Z.'s share of the fundraising dollars will go to Aark Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center in Newtown, PA. Aark rescues about 4,000 local birds and mammals annually, educates the public on how to treat wild creatures they find that are sick or injured and trains a group of volunteers on how to properly care for wild animals. Aark needs to relocate to a new facility, because the lease on their current facility was not renewed.

Refreshments will be served, and all moms will receive a free gift in honor of Mother's Day. For more information or to receive a sponsor form, contact Kimberly Kancylarz at kancylarzkl@delval.edu.
