Lions Racing Against Drugs
Race Against Drugs is an annual event attracting students from schools across the region. Four schools attended this year – a total of 139 Grade 5 students. Twelve presenters offered kids information on everything from drug sniffing dogs to paramedic care, bomb defusing to railroad safety. Participating policing organizations included the RCMP, Amherst and Springhill police, CN (Canadian National) police and Corrections Canada, and some of the non-profit or public agencies included Maggie’s Place and EHS, the YMCA and Wolfpack Football. The Lions promoted the event, and volunteers from the club, as well as high school students with SADD, helped run the event.
