Nanaimo couple wins Great Lake Walk’s spa package

Everyone to cross the finish line at the Great Lake Walk was made eligible to win a $1,000 spa package at Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat.

During this year’s Great Lake Walk event, everyone to cross the finish line after walking the full 56 kilometres was made eligible to win a $1,000 spa package at the Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat.

The recipient of this prize was Nanaimo resident Janet Rathy.

“I was very happy to receive the news that I won,” Rathy said,  “The day before I was looking at different get-away packages on the Retreat’s website.”

Chris Clarke from the Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat said that it was great for them to be a part of the community event because it fits with part of the vision of the retreat which is to promote health and wellness.

Great Lake Walk chair Joan Hieta adds that plans are already underway for next year’s event.

The GLW society is looking at making some changes to enhance the 2013 walk — like encouraging corporate challenges —  in hopes of getting registration numbers up.

Check out the GLW website for updates and to take their survey, or their facebook page.
