The third annual Noelle’s Gift of Fitness is being hailed as another success.

Over $67,000 was raised at this year’s event, well above the goal of $50,000.

Spokesperson Jackie Major Daamen says to date the event has collected just over $222,000.

Money raised benefits Noelle’s Gift.

The charity, which focuses on ensuring every student in Lambton County has the resources needed to thrive, was launched in memory of 27-year-old school teacher Noelle Paquette.

Since its inception nearly $500,000 has been raised.
