6 In the Sticks
“6 in the Sticks” is a six-kilometre Walk/Run taking place starting at the Vankleek Hill Fairgrounds on Sunday, August 19, starting at 9 a.m. The event is sponsored by The Vankleek Hill Agricultural Society. This year, the run is a fundraiser for Lupus Ontario. There will be merchandise for sale at the event and a portion of the registration fees will be donated to Lupus Ontario.
Following the run there will be a table on site where you can purchase Lupus Ontario merchandise and make donations to Lupus Ontario. The donations and proceeds received will be directed to the Ottawa Hospital Lupus Clinic to support local patients and their families.
The “6 in the Sticks” event typically raises funds for smaller, lesser-known charities every year. This year, Lupus Ontario was selected. Lupus is classified as a rare disease because only one in 1,000 will be diagnosed.
