A little damp weather hardly damped spirits at the Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic’s 2019 Fun Walk and Health Fair on Saturday, Sept. 14.
The clinic, also known as the Sequim Free Clinic, saw 125 walkers and 40 volunteers turn out for the annual event held at Trinity United Methodist Church.
Sara Nicholls, Executive Director of the Sequim Free Clinic, said this year’s event broke the goal of $35,000, raising $41,105.
Team Akaloo from Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church won both team awards: most walkers (55) and most money raised ($5,339).
The 5-kilometer/1-mile fun walk also included health screenings, information on healthcare specialty services, a yoga station, pre- and post-walk stretching and massage, music and door prizes.
More than 50 local businesses and individuals sponsored the event.
“We are grateful to everyone who participated and donated to help fund medical care for the underserved in our community,” Nicholls said.
