Eye Run for Henniker
The Henniker Lions Club Eye Run 5k Run/Walk
Join our race and help support so many wonderful causes.
- 100 % of all community dollars raised by the Henniker Lions go back to the Henniker Community.
- Lions provide sight screenings with our top of the line sight camera. If a child who is in need of exams and glasses is identified the Lions also provide vouchers for services and glasses to help the family in need.
- Helped raise money for Russell Durgin Scholarship Fund.
- Lions donate to the Henniker Community School 7th and 8th grade classes for their Environmental and Washington D.C. field trips. Last year two $500 scholarships were given to students in need to sponsor them on their educational trips. Another portion of those funds raised went to each student who participated in the race to help them achieve their fundraising goal.
- Lions provide fuel assistance to families in need each winter. Last year with race funds and funds from our Fuel Raffle we were able to donate $2,000 to help families heat their homes.
- Lions run/harvest a successful community garden that feeds the Henniker Food Pantry and 3 other local food pantries with fresh produce. The community garden also provides food for senior citizens, and the Henniker Community School.
- Lions help out at community events like: Safe Walks to School, The Bike Rodeo, The Henniker History Walk, and so much more.
This is definitely something to ROAR about!
