funrunThe 1st Annual Lynn Smith Memorial Fun Run on April 12th in Regina was a great success! My family and I were glad to attend and surprised by the large turnout on such a cold day. Hope to see even more of you next year. The CBA Saskatchewan Branch posted the following:

Despite the cold, over 60 participants showed up at the 1st Annual Lynn Smith Memorial Fun Run on April 12th, with $3,505 being raised for Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan and CLASSIC. That brings our#CBALawDay Fun Run grand total to $5,105!! Special thanks to all of those who came out for the Fun Run and to Lynn Smith’s family for their support of this event.
