Grand Bank-Fortune Running Club Spreads Christmas Cheer

The Grand Bank-Fortune Running Club laced up their sneakers this weekend to help spread some Christmas cheer.

Runners participated in their 3rd annual Random Act of Christmas Kindness Doorstep Challenge where they picked random people throughout the two communities who may have had a tough time this year, or just someone who could simply benefit from some festive goodwill. The group ran around both communities leaving gifts on doorsteps with a Christmas message inside.

The running club had a wonderful time spreading Christmas cheer to residents of Grand Bank & Fortune.
