MEDINA – The Medina Lions Club is participating for the first time with five other Lions clubs from Niagara County in a dice run to benefit local food pantries.

This is the fourth year Lions clubs in Olcott, Lewiston, Lockport, Wheatfield and Wilson have taken part in the dice run, but it is the first year Medina Lions have joined them, said Don Colquhoun, a member of Medina Lions.

The dice run will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at Bob Weaver’s Motorsports in Wilson. Their next stop will be Lockport and then Medina, where they expect to be at the gazebo in the canal basin at 1 p.m. After stops in Wheatfield and Lewiston, the run will end in Olcott about 3 p.m.

Colquhoun said there are many Lions members who enjoy motorcycling and this is a wonderful way to raise money for food pantries.

Riders pay a registration fee for each cyclist and passenger. At each stop, they roll four dice and at the end of the run, the top two riders who rolled the most points win part of the money and the rest is donated to the food pantries, along with any donations received along the way.

The public is invited to visit the canal basin in Medina and make a donation.
