The Red River South Refugee Committee is looking at bringing eight people from the Congo to Letellier.

Father Patrice Kasonga, priest at the Catholic Church in Letellier, has asked that the community help bring his family to Canada.

Spokesperson Denis Lemay says they're planning a fundraising relay marathon and walkathon for July 30th.

The event will start at 7 A.M. at the Letellier Park.

Lemay says those interested in participating should contact a committee member.
