Father’s Day happenings on the West Shore

This weekend is all about the dads out there, am I right? But it’s also just as much for the kids, I would imagine.

This weekend is all about the dads out there, am I right? But it’s also just as much for the kids, I would imagine.

Think about heading to Western Speedway on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Touch a Truck fundraiser, hosted by Sooke Preschool.

There’s going to be fire trucks, concrete mixers, dump trucks, buses and more for Dad and his offspring to touch, examine and even sit in. You might even win an hourly draw to work the sirens.

Admission is $5 for individuals, $10 for a family of four and $15 for a family of five.

If you want to make Dad feel extra special, help him help others.

The Safeway Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer starts at Royal Roads University on Sunday at 10 a.m.

Join families as they try to raise $108,000 by walking or running either an eight or three kilometre route.

Over 500 participants regularly take part in the event.

Registration is open until Saturday at noon.  The cost is $35 for adults, unless they collect $125 in donations, in which case it is waived.

Registration is free for youth under 12.

To register visit walktolive.ca.
