The residents at Wheatland Lodge hosted a fundraiser this morning for the Terry Fox Marathon of Hope Walk or Ride.

The ’Over the Hill’ Scooter Gang are generating the funds.

"It was fun. We went around down through the lake and around and back, which was beautiful. The weather was beautiful, so it was nice," said Olive Hayne, a resident at the Wheatland Lodge. 

The residents walked and rode around the downtown part of Strathmore, and people passing by were free to donate if they wanted to. 

"We will accept donations until the end of the day; we have our donation stand right here in the lodge."
