On Saturday, May 24th, the Kelowna Jaycees and friends rallied together to bring a $15,000 renovation to their yard just in time for their "Race for Kids" fundraising event happening the next weekend. Over 40 members, friends and people from the public joined us throughout the day to make it all happen. We partnered with our friends over at SYNLawn Okanagan and MRL Landscape Services who coordinated the event and brought everything together.
There was massive support from local businesses to make the renovation even possible.
