Langley Elks walk for better tomorrow

The sounds of birds chirping or wind whistling through the trees at places such as Campbell Valley Regional Park is something most people can take for granted.

The Langley Elks and Royal Purple are again hosting their fundraising walk-a-thon to help more children hear such things.

The service clubs raise money for the BC Family Hearing Resource Society with the walk-a-thon which is May 24 in Campbell Valley Regional Park.

“May is Speech and Hearing Month,” said Laverne Pringle, with the Langley Elks. “The Langley Elks financially support a number of children and youth programs, including this.”

The hearing society provides services around the region. The centre helps kids from birth to age six with individualized speech and language therapy, auditory training, and group programs for preschoolers and toddlers.

People can use pledge sheets, available through the local Elks and Royal Purple or at www.bcfamilyhearing.com. Tax receipts will be issued for any donations of $10 or more.

In addition to supporting the hearing centre, the local Elks and Royal Purple are part of community service organizations that provide a total of $10 million in support to health causes, sports teams, playgrounds and more.
