As always, the ultimate goal is to raise much-needed funds and create awareness for Lake Farm Centre, a residential centre for physically and intellectually challenged adults.  We also intend for the sponsors and participants of this event to enjoy a safe, fun and meaningful family experience.  The biggest highlight for the residents is to mingle with the community at this wonderful family affair.

BACKGROUND ON THE LAKE FARM CENTRE

Lake Farm Centre celebrates 60 years of providing a loving home and work place for 90 intellectually challenged residents.

Lake Farm Centre was founded in 1960 by Jack Walker and Ebba Booth and started in the very old buildings of the Lake Farm Hotel. The Centre has experienced many

changes over the years including the addition of electricity, tarred roads, new buildings, extra farm lands and the acquisition of the original farm buildings this year.

The Centre has 43 staff members, with 37 residing at the centre, ensuring the 24 hour support and care the centre requires. The Centre provides 10 separate work groups generating employment and the opportunity for residents to make a valuable contribution to the running and upkeep of the centre.

The Centre faces the challenge of making ends meet in a tough fundraising industry and slow economy.

The annual Lake Farm Centre Charity Run & Ride is their biggest annual fundraising platform.

From its humble beginnings Lake Centre had grown into a happy, productive Community where each individual is respected. Many of the foundation members are still making a meaningful contribution and appreciate the quality of life at the Centre.
